Poor WD HDD Performance
Posted on 1998-05-11
I installed a WD 4.3 GB UDMA HDD in Feb. and I am getting poor performance. It is partitioned into 1.3 and 2.0 GB partitions. I have noticed that reading midi files from the d: drive takes a while, and during NHL 98 gameplay the game 'skips' sometimes, pausing the video or repeating part of a name several times before it continues. I recently upgraded to a P-200 MMX and 32x cd-rom, which narrows it down to the HDD. How can I improve the HDD performance?
