Hi Adam:

Here's a more generic test. can you try

        for i in a b c d ; do
          echo "Trying hd$i";
          dd if=/dev/hd$i count=1 of=/dev/null;
        done

Not sure offhand if the ITE 8172 has multiple IDE channels/headers; your
HDD may also have an unreadable partition table.

Good luck
-Jeff
