I found the problem :D
the DMA support was activated for both IDE drives the HDD (it's ok) and for /dev/hdc (it's not ok).
Code Sample
hdparm -d0 /dev/hdc
solved the problem.

:;): But how do I change it in a config file ??

Well, congrats on finding the answer. I wouldn't have suspected dma.

You apparently have "dma" in your boot options. I'd remove that and add device-specific command to /opt/ (and make sure that file is backed up and restored).

Something like this should work:
Code Sample
for DEVICE in hda1 hda2 hdd; do
hdparm -d1 /dev/${DEVICE}

Replace the device names in the first line with your own
