I have a western digital 1600jb IDE HDD, and added a WD2500KS sata II drive. I have problems with writing to the sata disk. Using WinRAR, i am unable to compress/extract files without the program freezing every few seconds, and i have noticed that when this happens, the cpu usage in task manager drops to around 0%.
Benchmarking software doesnt seem to show any problems, but when i try to copy files to/from the drive, or even from one partition to another, i experience slow transfers. Any help to get my drive working properly would be much appreciated.
