That's an Ultra320 drive and I think you are trying to use it on a Fast/Wide controller. Have you jumpered the drive for Single Ended operation? See the "Installation Guide" from,1081,530,00.html

Please, please write back and tell us whether jlevie's suggestion worked.

I work for a hardware maintenance company that supports quite a few systems, and we have had that problem repeatedly, specifically with that drive and that system.  Moving the drive to another system (E220, A1000, even a clone) solves the issue.  Can we resolve this with a jumper?

I can't resolve this a jumper, today just try to re-change a new unit for a suppler. next day will try again.
