argh!
computers are so hard to understand!
so basically, my computer only had about 1GD of memory left, so i installed a new hard drive, now, i was playing songs of my C:\ drive, and they were playing fine, but i transferred them all to my new E:\ drive and now it keeps freezing and jumping bits and its REALLY annoying!
anyone know what could be wrong? like, i think its my sound or something because even that noise msn makes when someone has wrote something, you all know that noise, well, yeah, even thats started doing it
so anyone? please?

are you sure it's not a particular file that's damaged?
or perhaps you damaged the hard drive?
#3
one GD of memory?

i assume you mean GB. either way...

i'm not gonna pretend to be an expert on HD's, but if it's over a certain size, i think, 120gb, you have to partition it.

+1 to damaged HDD

have you moved it by whilst it's been turned on or trying to do something?

Does it still occur when you disconnect your new HD?

And it doesn't matter how big it is. If it goes beyond 127GB and you have XP without SP1 or 2 it'll only recognize the 127GB

i was sure i done something to the hard drive, but even when i transferred all my files back to the C:\ it still made the sound
and the extra hard drive is 30 GB by the way, and thank you for noting the spelling error
but its just annoyed me that i have to get 303 songs again

its not the hard drive, you've probably just messed up your sound card. reinstall the drivers

Your new hard drive is probably a different speed that what your computer can handle, if its an older comp your hard drive has to be like 5400RPM (I think it is) while most new computers have a 7200RPM and most drives you buy in stores now are ONLY 7200RPM so if you put that in your 5400, then it wont work properly and could overheat and damage your computers motherboard
#19
^Bullshit.
since when does hard drive spindle speed affect the computers sound? I think you'll also find if you bought a 2gb IDE 7000rpm drive and put it in a pentium PC, it would still work.

Dude, trust me, I've had a 7200 in my 5400 before and it DOES affect it, because if the computer can only handle up to 5400RPM and the hard drive is running at 7200RPM, then the disk has to keep slowing down, which does affect the access speed, I'm not saying just the sound, install a game on the drive and when you play it, occasionally it will pause as well. I've had the same problem.
#21
no, thats your drive seek speed. typically its between 8ms and 11ms, but larger (server based) hard drives run into 15ms.

i've never EVER seen a direct link with the two. the motherboard talks to the drives firmware, not its motor. the firmware gets information on where the data is that is needed, and gets it. it has no idea what is installed in your system, and how fast it should go. i've researched it. the only problem you will ever get is the bios having a fit about the drive, and thats only with the drives size!

The RPM is how fast the disk spins... If it spins faster than the computer can read it, then there WILL be problems, and it WILL be slower.
#23
yes, the faster it spins the faster it reads. the computer doesn't care if it has a faster hard drive, it wants data. it won't poll the drive and slow it down, since it can't physically play a part in the drives speed. thats the firmwares job, which usually relates to idle (1000rpm when the computers on sleep/not being used) and full (whatever speed it goes to).

I have SP1. I have one single partition, and it shows up as 370 GB.

Yeah, the faster it spins the faster it reads, but your telling me that older computers, which came out before 7200RPM drives existed can go above there maximum speed and all the way up to 7200?!?!

Crazy, so if a faster speed, 10800RPM were to come out, that all current computers could run them?

No way dude.

Ask Scourge, he's really helpful with computers...
Har har

He PM'd me and funnily enough, I had the same problem as him once and told him exactly what I did. Basically I think he has a dodgy drive, or one that doesn't have great compatibility with the rest of his computer. Told him to try formatting the drive and partition it a bit, see if it still stuffs up then. If so, to take it to the store and get it replaced.

Not exactly the fanciest techno-doodad there, but it's what I did. People told me to format the drive and shit, it didn't work, so I got it replaced. The drive was dodgy.
I didn't have a signature until now.

there is no drive speed limitation in the BIOS! jesus christ. yes, if you released a crazy fast drive, your computer wouldn't complain. all the RPM is showing is how fast the platters are spinning. you could quite easily make a drive that span at 80,000 RPM and flashing the firmware so that it can actually read data that fast, and your computer wouldn't mind in the slightest. thats like saying if you put a car engine that idles at 20kRPM into a mini the radio will explode.

Which is exactly why a 7200RPM didnt work in my old 5400RPM comp, but I took the 7200 back and got a 5400 and it worked perfectly.

Yeah. Your right.

maybe the drive was ****ed?

maybe you had this problem http://www.microsoft.com/technet/archive/win98/support/dma66dr.mspx?mfr=true

which has nothing to do with RPM speeds, but DMA.

I like to class myself as one of those people that know what they're talking about with pc's.
