ATA-2

Making EIDE official, was the reason for ATA-2. In the original IDE, the specification was just for hard drives. By adding AT Attachment Packet Interface (ATAPI), other devices such as a tape drive or Compact Disc-Read Only Media (CD-ROM) were now supported in the ATA specification.

Seagate certainly wasn't going to stand around and watch a competitor take the limelight. They added some functionality, and called it Fast ATA. Quantum joined the fray, and created Fast ATA-2. Notice these terms are not bolded? That is because these were (are?) marketing terms to reflect some added functionality.
