Hi Randy,

Did you see this bit about transfer speed issues?

For those customers that are unable to update, or have a Series 2 (2045, 2405, 2405Q, 2805) or a low-port Series 5 (5405, 5405Z, 5445, 5805, 5805Z, 5085, 5805Z, 5805ZQ) controller, the Western Digital WD20EADS and WD2002FYPS drives will need to be jumpered down to 1.5Gb/sec in order to function properly (please refer to the specific jumper settings provided below).
