Question ata1: softreset failed (device not ready) after PC shut down for a while


Dear all,
My IDE hard drive that is connected via IDE to SATA converter into SATA port throws up some error (showing in /var/log/dmesg):
Code:
ata1: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
ata1: link online but device misclassified, retrying
ata1: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
ata1: link online but device misclassified, retrying
ata1: link is slow to respond, please be patient (ready=0)
ata1: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
ata1: link online but device misclassified, retrying
ata1: limiting SATA link speed to 1.5 Gbps
ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 310)
ata1.00: failed to IDENTIFY (INIT_DEV_PARAMS failed, err_mask=0x80)
ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 310)

ata1: link online but device misclassified, retrying
ata1: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 310)
ata1: link online but device misclassified, retrying
ata1: link is slow to respond, please be patient (ready=0)
ata1: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 310)
ata1: link online but device misclassified, retrying
ata1: softreset failed (device not ready)
ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 310)
ata1: link online but device misclassified, device detection might fail
This happens only when the PC is off for couple of minutes or longer. Funny thing is, if the PC is rebooted or "shutdown and restart with time gap of couple seconds", the problem doesn't show.

I'm using GiGabyte GA-EP457-DS3 motherboard.

Any ideas how to fix the problem?

regards,
