You will have a slight delay when writing from SATA to IDE because of the slightly lower transfer rates IDE offers. Especially if the SATA drive has say a nice large 8mb or 16mb cache and older IDE has a very small 2mb cache that can impact it as well. It can be a lot of things RPM of each drive etc etc..when you say slow how bad is it? Like copying 1GB of data from one drive to one drive how long does it take? We have a bout the same setup so I can see how long it takes on mine. Only thing is I have two SATAII drives.
