I have two hard disks installed on my computer: on one C: and one on D:

I have run HD Tune 2.55 (a program that measures the speed of the hard disk) which says my C: unit speed is about 10MB/sec, meanwhile my D: unit is about 100MB/s.

C: is a Western Digital Hard Disk and D: is a Seagate Hard Disk. Both have 1000GB (1TB) of capacity.

Both drives arahciue SATA and OnChip SATA mode is configured in IDE mode on BIOS (I tryied to change this to  AHCI mode but then my Windows XP doesn't start).

My computer is a Quad CPU with 8GB or RAM, running Windows XP as operating system. Any help to improve my hard disk performance will be appreciated.
