    I have 2 hdd on my pc. Primary is sata which has the windows on it and the second one is ide samsung. The ide has slowed down suddenly due to some unknown reason. I reinstalled the windows and everything worked fine for a few days and again it started slowing down.
    I noticed when copying a video file from D: hard disk to C: instead of 40 secs it would take 6 minutes and sometimes the times would go back and forth / fluctuate!

    Also disk defragmentation for e: when analyzing it would take 20 seconds longer than in the past. It would gradually reveal blue bars a bit at a time until the full analyzing had been done.
    It took me 15 minutes to copy 100mb of files.
    Please help. I even tried uninstalling the drive and then disconnectiong and again reinstalling from device manager. But nothing worked. Some post said that I need to refresh the connection to mother board but all in vain. Please help!!!!
