WD Caviar Black FAEX 64MB freeze


Sometimes when i’m listening some MP3 files during a copy or a decompression, i get a freeze about one seconde on the copy or on winamp.

Here is a picture from the Disk Monitor (HDTune)

Blue lines represent the MP3 reading, and the orange lines the copy of file (400Mo).

We can see that during the second copy there isn’t reading from the mp3 files. I got a small freeze at this time.

I use this WD1002FAEX-00Z3A0 as a storage HDD. My MP3 is in it.

The SMART is ok, i ran a quick test of WinDlg, no error.

This is normal?


Could this be a buffering issue?
