When I disconnect the second drive, the speed goes back to normal. But I need that second drive!
Why is it so slow??
My IDE layout:
Primary Master: Maxtor 60GB (Windows drive)
Primary Slave: Seagate 250GB (Making system slow)
Secondary Master: LG DVD-ROM drive
Secondary Slave: None
I would much rather have the Seagate drive in a USB enclosure, but I have exchanged three enclosures now, and it works in none of them, even though it works fine internally. The jumpers are set to Master.
The enclosures were:
First try: Generic enclosure
Second try: "Smart-Drive"
Third Try: NexStar something-or-other
None of them would take the drive!
The drive appears in Device Manager, but not in Disk Management, even though Dev. Manager says that it is "Working Properly".
I hate hard drives!!!!!!!!
EDIT: A pin is missing from the drive, but somebody on another forum said it was fine, could this be the problem? (View attachment)
