second hard drive slow
Posted on 2006-05-15
I have xp home p4 2.4 1 gig wd 120 I used to keep my media files on this drive but I have too many so I bought a wd 250. the 120 has 8 meg cache and the 250 has 16. when viewing video it stutters, when setting up playlists or when previewing the many 1000's of songs it halts for a few seconds; it never did these with just the 120. the 250 is the primary slave to the 120.
Do you think it's a bad drive or is the slave slower/unreliable than the master??
Thanks for your input.
