I'm having this problem myself, with a new WD 13.5G drive. My old Samsung 4.3G disk, which is also UDMA capable, doesn't show any problems. I have an Asus P5A-B MB with the Alladin V chipset, BTW.
Meanwhile, ou can add something like this in /etc/sysctl.conf:
hw.atamodes=pio,---,pio,pio
It means, force master in first IDE controller and master and slave in second IDE controller to go into PIO mode, rather than (U)DMA. The "---" is because my first controller doesn't have a slave drive.
