    Are you using Maxtor's disk utility to do the copy?

    It sounds like something is not hooked up right if it will take 16hr to copy a 40gb drive. I've copied 30gb with Norton Ghost in 40-some min.. How do you have your drives hooked up and jumpered? I also usually make the new drive the master on the primary channel, unhook an optical drive from the secondary channel and make the old drive the seconary master for copying purposes. This allows both drives to work at the same time. In addition, when done, the new drive is already setup to be the boot drive. When copying is finished, reconnect the optical drive and connect (and jumper) the old drive as slave to the new drive if you want to keep it in the system.
