    Is the drive on its own cable? Do you have DMA enabled on it?

    If you google AIDA32 and download though it will give you the specs of your HDD

    If you go into the BIOS there should be an option for DMA.

    What is the other device connected to the cable?

    What chipset is the motherboard? Also the Maxtor will be a ATA33 hdd and slow the other drive down to its speed

    right some development :
    took the old drive out
    installed the new hdd on single ide(ide-0) cable with no other drives
    ide 1, has two optical drives on
    i am using win xp. And i am stil geting ****ing 2.2mbps bandwidth which sucks. I can't even play a damn movie in vcd quailty. Will try to reinstall IDE drivers. I *think* it is because of the dodgy cable

    Don't you have a spare cable? I've never seen an IDE cable with a red connector before. Ultra ATA is usually blue at the mobo end. Which is why I asked which mobo you have.

    Definitely the 4 in 1, but get the latest. Maybe the miniport too - I can't recall.

    Have you updated to the latest BIOS (FB)?

    This motherboard only supports ATA-100, so you won't get full speed from modern HDs. I'm trying to work out whether you are using the right cable - is it one that came with the motherboard?

    Well u see, i bought this pc from this man who built it from me 3yrs ago, so i don't really know if he used the mobo cables, but i think they are the motehrboard cables. I am really of scared of doing BIOS updates as i have seen ppl who had awfullll problems with doing it.

    Installed the drivers, no increase in bandwidth but CPU utilisation dropped to 12% +/-2%. Miniport drievrs can be uninstalled, so i am just being patient to see if anythng else works first. I should be able to try the hdd with a new cable in the next few days.

    One more thing :
    Will two IDE drives(cd+HDD) on two ide cables give me MUCH MORE performance than two ide drives on one cable.

    Thanks
