  I would trust that too. These are really ancient hardware, maybe 10+ 
years old, and certainly not DMA-compatible. Since they all fall back to 
PIO0, itīs better to force them to not higher tahn PIO-2 or 3. Itīs 
certainly not a controller issue, since Highpoint chips are well 
supported. ;)
  Note: according to Seagateīs reference guide (last updated 5/13/91 o_O 
for this disk), the ST3120A is plain ATA-bus, what means itīs probably 
only PIO-0. I wouldnīt expect better for the Conner.
  Good luck,
