   * This interface supports "Fast IDE", with PIO modes from 0 (slowest) to 6 (fastest).   * This interface supports "Fast IDE", with PIO modes from 0 (slowest) to 6 (fastest).
     * Most storage devices are **certified** to support up to PIO mode 4, but many CF cards are **certified** to support up to PIO modes 5 and 6.  Therefore, fast CF cards enable the maximum possible speed on this interface.     * Most storage devices are **certified** to support up to PIO mode 4, but many CF cards are **certified** to support up to PIO modes 5 and 6.  Therefore, fast CF cards enable the maximum possible speed on this interface.
-      * If you can't use a CF card, you might still be able to reach PIO modes 5 and 6 using another fast storage device, in case it **unofficially** supports those modes as a side effect of its high DMA speed.+      * If you can't use a CF card, you might still be able to reach PIO modes 5 and 6 using another ​type of fast storage device, in case it **unofficially** supports those modes as a side effect of its high DMA speed.
     * If you attach multiple devices to a single IDE cable, the slowest device will dictate the maximum speed on this interface. ​ For example, if you have a CF card that supports PIO mode 6, its speed would be hampered by a hard disk which only supports PIO mode 4.     * If you attach multiple devices to a single IDE cable, the slowest device will dictate the maximum speed on this interface. ​ For example, if you have a CF card that supports PIO mode 6, its speed would be hampered by a hard disk which only supports PIO mode 4.
-  ​* When connecting or disconnecting a device on this interface, make sure that the Amiga / Vampire is powered off.  Also, disconnect Digital Video and Ethernet cables to prevent power backfeed into the Vampire.+    * To enable “Fast IDE”, please see ''​[[:​system_tools:​vcontrol:​VControl IDESPEED]]''​. 
 +  ​* When connecting or disconnecting a device on this interface, make sure that the Amiga / Vampire is powered off.  Also, disconnect ​all devices that have their own power connection, such as Digital VideoEthernet ​and USB-Blaster ​cablesto prevent power backfeed into the Vampire.
   * Be very careful when connecting a device to this interface. ​ If you shift your connector to either side of this interface (meaning that you don't cover all pins), you can cause a short circuit and destroy the Vampire.   * Be very careful when connecting a device to this interface. ​ If you shift your connector to either side of this interface (meaning that you don't cover all pins), you can cause a short circuit and destroy the Vampire.
