very slow drive... need help - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Yeah, Seagate drives usually come with a jumper installed that limits them to SATA I speeds. You have to remove it to get SATA II speeds.

@karther: i dont know anything about the jumpers on my MB. I assume they are fine because the other drive is fast. even if it were at 1.5Gb/s thats still 187MB/s and would not be slowing down the drive

@error10: how would i got about changing this jumper?

The jumper is on the back of your HDs.

Pull it off the drive, and lose it. Er, I mean, store it in a safe place.

Read is half speed but write is 1/10 speed.

Umm. What is filesystem format on that hard drive? HPFS?
Have you tried stopping service superfetch and then benching it?

i removed the jumper and that has improved things slightly. now it starts out quite fast but steadily slows down to about 16MB/s.

file system is NTFS

i havent stopped superfetch but i dont see it anywhere in my list of services running.

That's incredibly slow. Are you sure you don't have a virus or something?

it been like that since they day i got it a couple months ago. other than that the comp runs perfectly, performance is good. and i think a virus would be more likely to affect my primary drive rather than a storage drive i use for music and movies.

Are you looking in services or in running "processes" because there's a difference. Service you get to through administration tools, processes you get to through task manager.
