You have three different components for transferring data from the hard drive.
You have the hard drive itself, the cable, and the ATA device on the motherboard. In the situation that any of these are ATA100, but some are ATA133, then everything will run at the compatible speed, in this case 100. This is often referred to as backward compatible
To answer your specifc question, everything will work, but at the ATA100 speed, unless everything is ATA133.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.
