    This is driving me nuts Mr.Lsdmeasap. I did encoding on a DVD in the HP and it took 4:54 to do. Took the same IDE drive out of HP and put it in new machine. Did the same encoding and it took 6:52 to do. Do you have any other ideas to try? I feel real bad by new machine is be out done by HP. Could it be something about my new Hard Drive? Their is no jumpers install and it shoule be reading as fast as it can. Is their a Benchmark program I can run too check my new system. If I ask too many question Please forgive me, just trying too learn. Thanks again for any new help you can give me

    Ok here is what I did, took the hard drive out of the HP and installed in new machine. Ran the encoding and it was faster than the HP now, so I have a Hard drive issure.The HP han a Maxtor 200GB Sata 150 drive and XP-Pro with service pack 2 in it. My new machine has a Segate Barracuda 500 GB drive with XP-Pro with SP3 in it. For some reason the Segate is reading and writing slower. There is no jumper to force 150 transfer so it should do 300. Could there be a setting in Bios holding me back. Any suggestions on this.

    What do you have set in the integrated peripherals page, and where is the drives (CD and Hard) connected to the board?

    That 500GB may be slower as it may have more platters, so you never know. If Hard drive is the only actual source of the speed comparisons then it cannot be considered a comparison as they are two very different drives.

    To make a real comparison you would need to test one or both in each machine and compare the results of both drives in both machines (Long time and 4 installs later, sounds like a lot of time for nothing really). Smaller drives are often faster due to less platters and larger drives are more geared towards capacity
