  1. Strange hdparm -I output

    Hi everybody,

    I have a strange hdparm -I output for my two Maxtor 6L200P0 200G PATA
    hard drives.

    Why are they different? and how can current value be larger than the
    max value for hdc?
    Is that OK? And/or how to correct/reconfigure it?

    Thanks for your help.
