I have two hard drives in my PC, a 7200RPM 80GB Maxtor which is the master and a 7200RPM 120GB Maxtor which is the slave. When I play an audio or video file on the 120GB drive the sound pops, cracks, and skips but when I play the same file on the 80GB drive it sounds fine. I ran the Windows scandisk utility, I reformatted the drive, I defragmented the drive, I ran a thorough test using Maxtor's PowerMax V4.21, and I rearranged the cables in my case to try and eliminate any possible EMF problems but so far nothing has helped. Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance.
