Default hd to hd transfer

ok heres the situation...i had a hard drive with like 30 gigs of data on it and wanted to put that hd into a new comp. the hd to begin with was just a second hd so it had no operating system or anything on it. i put it into the new rig, as a secind drive also, and now the comp takes longer to load. so am i safe in doing that? i decided to move the 30 gigs of data over to the primary drive so i can reformat the drive and sees if it helps. the problem now it that it takes like 5 hrs to transfer that 30gigs to primary drive. they are both 7200 rpm drives and i would think it would be faster than that. so is there something wrong here?
