Hey guys. I recently purchased a WestDig 250 GB SATAII 16 MB HD. After installing it, I transferred a couple of my files on my old HD (which i stilll use in my rig) to the new HD, but noticed that the transfer rate was incredibly slow. Moving a couple files would hang my computer up, making me unable to do anything else while the files transferred. The files would also do that ghost thing (after moving the files, they still showed up in the old folder, and when i clicked on them to move again it would say "target not found, etc etc.") I restarted a couple times to make sure it wasn't a fluke. Then, i checked the temperature of the HD (which i don't do often) and found it was a beasty 52 degrees C, at idle!. Don't know what to do.... should i just RMA? Or can you guys tell me what's wrong.
