I am trying to create a new database on SQL 2005.  I have tried to do this through enterprise mgr and QA and it never completes.  I have to kill the process.  When I go and look at the process I notice that the wait type is the following when it is trying to create the new database:

ASYNC_IO_COMPLETION

any ideas?
