I have been having a lot of difficulties with my FreeAgent Pro 750gb
external drive. I am running Vista Home 32bit with 4gigs on an HP 7640n.
I have updated every known driver available. Ran HD Tach and got around
118 for peak. However, when I transfer movies (around 3gb) from my
internal sata to the external, it starts around 25mb and quickly drops
to below 10mb. Sometimes it has gone as low as 2mb. I saw there was a
firmware update for the drive enclosure. I did that update and there was
no improvement. Even through the USB port I get around the same
sustained transfer rate. WTH is going on?????
