Your drive can't run at 300 as your motherboard doesn't have the right chipset to support this speed, if you want to try it just set the jumper to '300' and if you get a 'drive not detected error' then replace the jumper to the '150' setting and have a look for a SATA host adapter that supports autonegotiation. The highest your drive will go is UDMA 6.

Sorry about the wait!
