They work very well under AmigaOS, but they have problems under NetBSD when performing write operations, as I told here [1]. I know an user that recently was successful booting the 9.3 miniroot, but had to give up due to the IDE device timeout with CF card.

Would you be able to run a quick test with a HEAD kernel from
http://nyftp.netbsd.org/ ? I know there have definitely been
adjustments to the ATA/IDE code since netbsd-9, and it would be useful
to confirm if the problem is still here (if convenient)
