Restart and see if that helps.

Yeah I've done that now and didn't help unfortunately.

However, when I started playing games that I installed on the Western Digital HDD I noticed that there was some kind of 1-3 sec freezelag in any game, games such as Counter-Strike, GTA & World of Warcraft.
Then I tried installing one of the games on the SSD instead, and it worked fine till a few weeks ago where the game has now started to stop responding a few times a day. So when I install games on the HDD all games happen to freezelag a couple of times a day for around 1-3 seconds. And when I install games on the SSD they now stop responding at times. And then I started wondering if it might be because I installed my SSD incorrectly. I installed Windows 7 on my SSD like I'd do on a normal HDD. I've tried to format the SSD as well as the HDD to see if that helps but it didn't. Got the latest drivers for motherboard, graphics etc as well. So I was wondering if anyone got a clue what can be wrong?

I get the same problem all the time after a fresh boot on my Rig. The first SSD I ever got will freeze up the OS for about 30secs- 3mins and then resume to normal until next restart. I have not figured out the issues, but my samsung SSD does not do this at all.

Kriickz, my gut feel is that your problem is related to the WD Green drive. Surely something to do with power management, the firmware, head parking or even the variable platter rotational speed.

Your best bet is to consider changing that drive out if you plan on using it for applications (especially games).

While I applaud WD's effort to help the environment - the Green drive isn't an ideal solution for the tasks you've assigned to it.

Yeah that's probably best tbh. Thanks a lot for all help!

I appreciate the kind words, but I'm afraid I wasn't much help. You still have a problem and the best I could do in the end is recommend ditching the WD Green for something else frown.gif

At any rate I hope you get it sorted out. I did some further research on the Green drive and the web is splattered with complaints about people using the green drive for things like apps and games. On the other hand, there are some people who claim that the drive is working great for them.
