    Drive Speeds Cut In Half!

    it was on the mobo's Ide controller, Also I did not have another system to test it in but I saw the speed drop when I was transfering 2 Gb's from another drive... It took a little over an Hour to do it all. I also then after that ran Hdtach and thats when I got the numbers, Right now the drive is just laying on my desk. I installed my Maxtor 160Gb drive I got It's a nice drive but it sounds just like my 7 year old Maxtor drive :\ I thought it would be slient like the Maxtor 40Gb but I guess that's not the case here. Nevertheless I get around 65-75MB/s on a transfer.

    Drive Speeds Cut In Half!

    Does not matter now.. I just picked up a New Maxtor 160GB drive today.. However I forgot the Controller card
  4. I just did a HDtach test because I'm very curious about the drive... I can't play Mp3's without it skipping nor can I burn a dvd without the drive saving it's self from a coster.. So I did a test with Hdtach and I got a CPU use of 98.6% and the hdtach says.. Red speed - maximum 2.0MB/s, minmum speed 1.2MB/s, average 1.9MB/s What the heck is that? I mean I know I been having sector problems with the drive and I just now got the drive to be shown in bios again but the transfer rates...

    Power On Hours?

    i'm still tempted to buy a larger drive anyways.. something is wrong with the drive.. It's really slow.. I burned a dvd at 4x the other day and every second the burner had to use the buffer underrun protection.. and trying to listen to Mp3's are a pain now... it's skipping and slowing down... Windows also takes longer to boot.
