I am confused about hard drive designations for my Pismo. I have seen info where it states that it will take an ATA 5, ATA 66, and ATA 100 drive. I have also seen where it says that an ATA 6 drive will not work in the Pismo, but I have seen people say that an ATA 6 drive worked fine in their Pismo's.

Please help me understand the difference in these ratings and which ones will work in my Pismo.

Thanks for the help.
