    Default Weird problem with UD4H, need some help!!

    Ok so i made this build 2 month ago: Phenom II 940 BE
    GA-MA790GP-UD4H
    2x 1G 1066 Kingstone Hyper X
    XFX Geforce 8800 GT 512
    320GB caviar WD HD
    my old PSU 300W
    3Daurora case
    my old 19 Viewsonic lcd

    The problem: Went yesterday and bought a new 500W OCZ Stealth stream PSU and a 640 GB Caviar Blue HD, after installing the new PSU and HD, every time i try to copy any thing the pc hangs and i have to reboot. The strange thing is that i can access any thing on the 320GB HD with out a problem ex: watching a movie , playing a game, listening to music ect. but, if i try to access anything on the 640 GB drive its extremely slow....whats even more strange is that when i swap the new PSU with the old one, the thing works just fine again.


    Failed Attempts to fix:
    1- Bought 2 new PSU's 450w and a 600w, both can't copy without hanging.
    2- Changed the sata cords and changed positions on the Board
    3- Disabled/Enabled cool & quite, fail-safe, optimized defaults in bios
    4- Bought a 2000W Voltage Stabilizer.
    5-Bought a new 500GB Caviar black HD, same thing slow and hangs when i try to copy.
    6- Changed RAM positions.


    Sorry for the long post but, im almost going

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Have you tried formatting your drives and installing your OS again?

    I'm quoting a dell answer here: I don't really know myself, just googling...

    "I think your second hard disk is at PIO mode instead of DMA mode.

    (1) To confirm, right click on "My Computer", go to "Properties", then "Hardware", then "Device Manager", then double-click "IDE ATA/ATAPI controller" or something like that, then double-click on "Primary IDE channel", then "Advanced Settings". Make sure that "Transfer Mode" for both disks are set as "DMA if available". If "Current Transfer Mode" still says "PIO", please do the following:

    (2) Reboot and go to BIOS setup (hit a special key during reboot, such as F2 or F8, normally announced on the first screen), then check to see if your second hard disk is in "off" mode. If it is, turn it on or change it to "Auto". It may say "Unknown Device" at the beginning, but if you reboot again it should recognize the second hard disk.

    Now do (1) again and you should see "DMA mode" instead of "PIO mode". The speed should be much higher in DMA mode.

    Hope this helps. I had the same problem with my Dell computer and it took me two days to finally figure it out. It's a very stupid BIOS setting on Dell's part. Somehow the "off" setting prevents DMA mode but still allows the much slower PIO mode. Let me know if it solves your problem."

    If your bios is like mine, no such inf.

    Changing the power supply makes the second sata drive run slow?

    As baffled as you.

    Here is your motherboard manual for reference. ftp://download.gigabyte.ru/manual/mo...0gp-ud4h_e.pdf
    You may be using SATA AHCI and SATA native IDE but you must set your connectors and bios for it. AHCI and IDE should not be together on the same set of connectors. SATAII_0-3 are one set and SATAII_4-5 are another set. As bios and your motherboard manual will explain this some.
    Which SATAII did you hook the drives up to on the board?

    By artdrivers at 2009-09-13
    Do you have AHCI drivers on your OS? Set to AHCI in bios.
    Lets access your bios and have a look. Did you configure your SATA drives in bios as native ide?
    Code:
    Integrated Peripherals
    OnChip IDE Channel [Enabled]
    OnChip SATA Controller [Enabled]
    OnChip SATA Type [Native IDE]
    x OnChip SATA Port4/5 Type [IDE]
    Onboard Audio Function [Enabled]
    Onboard 1394 Function [Enabled]
    Onboard LAN Function [Enabled]
     SMART LAN [Press Enter]
    Onboard LAN Boot ROM [Disabled]
    OnChip USB Controller [Enabled]
    USB EHCI Controller [Enabled]
    USB Keyboard Support [Disabled]
    USB Mouse Support [Disabled]
    Legacy USB storage detect [Enabled]
    Onboard Serial Port 1 [3F8/IRQ4]
    We don't know where you have it plugged in or the bios settings can you explain. Maybe we can help. What OS are you using is AHCI enabled in bios and on the OS?

    ok, i found that the second HD is in PIO mode and i couldn't find anything in bios to changed that so i repositioned my sata cables to a different channel and now both on ultra DMA mode both now are fast when browsing or using any thing on them thx mate . But the main problem is still there every time i try to copy/cut anything on both HD's the copy hangs and every thing freeze...have to reboot.

    I have both drives on SATA2_4 and SATA2_5

    and i have the exact same settings in the bios. (Native IDE)

    I tried to plug only the Main HD in the SATA2_0 port but, still every time i copy something from a partition to another the copy stops at mid and the thing freeze i can only minimize and maximize the windows after that but, can't do anything else, then i reboot.
