  • low hard drive transfer rate

    i have a utility called HD tune, and it can test the transfer rate for your hard drive(s), my drive that i have my OS on, which is a SATA 250gb WD 7200 rpm retail from best buy, about 6 months old, and the maximum transfer rate is 10.2MB/s, my SATA raid drive is 60MB/s and my laptop ATA 7200rpm is 45.
    Is there a reason/problem that my main hard drive for my desktop is maxing out at 10MB/s? is 60 good for a raid setup? is 40 good for a laptop? what do you guys get for a transfer rate?

    To give you some comparison, my 1.5 year old Seagate 320GB 7200 RPM SATA drive gets 74.3MB/s max and 61.1MB/s average.

    [edit] My 6 month old Seagate 320GB 7200 RPM eSATA drive gets 76.4MB/s max and 63.2MB/s average.

      Have you swapped individual components to verify that the bottleneck isn't the SATA card or the motherboard? Have you looked to see if anyone else has measured your model of drive? (Posting the exact model number helps.)

        the max for my laptop (hitachi HTS726060M9AT00 60GB) was 38 and burst rate was 78. i'll check my other pc later and post those results also.

          Here is another idea for you to try, as I had a problem like yours till after days of searching forums I found this to check, and it was my problem.

          Right Click on My Computer
          Click Properties
          Go to the Hardware Manager (Device Manager)
          (I am on Vista now, so this may be different than when I did it on XP, but I remember it being very near to this.)
          Hit the plus sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI contollers
          Go through each one of those and right click and look at Properties.
          I think you have to click on like the "ADvanced Settings" tab or something
          What you are looking for is to make sure your running with Ultra DMA Mode, with a number like 4 or 5.
          My old computer somehow dropped down to some really old format and once I googled and found out how to get it back to Ultra DMA Mode, my game was back to new.

          I noticed an instant change and it was like a new computer.

          Let us know if you figure anything out.

                no luck, after trying to boot my desktop after a weekend away, it sticks on the booting screen, i am not worried about it, becaause any important information is on my raid drives, and not that main drive anyway i need to find a way to reinstall windows onto a drive without formatting it tho.. maybe set up a partition of about 15gb or something

                    Have you tried swapping SATA ports? Sometimes it could be a port going bad.
