Western Digital Caviar SE WD800JD 80GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
Posted on 2006-05-01
Hi, I have a Western Digital Caviar SE WD800JD 80GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM but it doesn't seem like it's 3.0Gigabits per second or fast. My girlfriend has an old ata hard drive on an older comptuer and it seems like things load a little faster on it than the computer I have.
I thought all you had to do is install the hard drive and everything should work without any driver installs. The jumpers on the drive should be configured correctly out of the box right? I have all the nforce drivers, installed properly. Is there something that i'm missing? It seems like my USB hard drive is faster than the SATA drive.
Here are my specs.
