SATA disk not running in correct DMA mode?


Hopefully a simple one but using "HD Tune" to look at the info on the HDD of one of my computers i noticed that it said the following:

Supported: UDMA Mode 7 (Ultra ATA/512)
Active: UDMA Mode 5 (Ultra ATA/100)

FYI the model is a 200Gb Samsung Spinpoint (SP2004C)

Is this normal or should it be running faster and if so how do i make it so?

...I also noticedd all my other HDD's running like this.

Any help is appreciated.

  1. - Hd Tune often tells it wrong
    - It depends on the host as well
    - Is your Sp2004c Pata or Sata?
    - UDMA Mode 7 (Ultra ATA/512): what's that?
    - What does Hd Tach tell as buffered read speed?

    More reliable information through Intel Applications Accelerator if applicable (older Intel hosts).
