i have my hard drive almost full of data and is properly aligned to windows 7
but it seems that this new adanced format thing sometimes doesnt work like it should…
normaly in usb i have poor transfers writing to the drive like 15MBs
the drive is properly aligned to windows 7and its working in an external case with e-sata and usb 2.0…
it seems that setting the jumper in wd15ears the drive works much better in the older mode 512 bytes so i will try with this drive too
what do i need to do??
i think i need to transfer all my data to another drive and remove all partitions ?? its that correct or there is another better way?
( i will have to wait because i dont have another drive so big to put he data in)
im trying to find a way to bypass this issue because i know that the problem is the firmware and its support and not the mechanics in the drive
the smart is clean :) and the drive has been working great (only the speeds sometimes) in the 3 months that i own it
im trying basicaly to revert it back to he old mode preparing to windows xp ( but i will continue to use windows 7 alongside with it to acess the data, i hope that will be no problem…
thank you once again
sorry for my bad english
