if this was before you defragmented your hard drive, it's performance probably was pretty low due to it's being fragmented...

Nothing to laugh about, man! A lot of people still use IDE. From what I understand, heat can have a big impact on hard drives. Are you keeping them cool? What brand is it?

Try getting SpeedFan and check it with S.M.A.R.T.

It'll tell you the performance and fitness of your drive.

Like he said, what brand is the HD? You definitely should run the SMART test using SpeedFan and post some screen shots of your results. Any info you can give on the HD will help us diagnose the problem.

edit-
Here is a link to SpeedFan
You should also check it with HD Tach
This is a direct link to download HD Tune
Direct link to download Drive Health monitoring tool

As stated earlier, please post screen shots of you results and any info it gathers about the HD specs/info so it makes it easier for someone to help out.

Thanks.

Good, I am sure that someone will be able to help you diagnose your problem when they see the data. I may not be much help in that department b/c I think my drive is failing too so I am going through the same kind of process that you are. Hopefully the links to the diagnostic programs will get you started on the right track.
