That´s like it worked here allways.

quote from /etc/hdparm.conf

## Any line that begins with a comment is ignored - add as many as you

try this one maybe:
- --------------------------------
/dev/hdb {
    dma = on

- --------------------------------

It not only missed "write_cache = on" line there are also some not
visible characters behind "dma = on" in your example.
Also try to put an empty line under that.
I have heard there sometimes problems with some editors, that do not
enter a correct newline symbol at the end of a line.

So maybe
