model: WD5000AACS aka Green 500GB 16MB cache (made: April 2009)
summary: i need a solution to copy my 1GB movies out fast !!!
anyone got this problem of slow read but write ok?
i am using this drive as a network storage (dlink nas dns-323) … formatted with ext2. it was ok for the last few months until this week… the read speed drops to few kb/s… but still the write speed is **STILL** ok - few Mb/s. it is only 1/3 full around 100GB full.
i had no problem with another WD Green 1TB in the network storage… so it is definity not a problem with my NAS.
i tried copy between drive within my network storage… it is very slow…
i tried to insert into my main computer and run linux live cd to copy to another drive and the transfer rate is so slow that the action was terminated by the live cd.
for small files, say few kb big… it is within acceptable speed.
is there any solution in OS level or software level to copy out the files?
