Extremely slow transfer speeds from IDE hard drive to Sata

\015 I have a dell optiplex gx620 that came with an 80gb sata hard drive. here's the details of the drive :\302\240WDC WD800JD-75MSA1 74.50Gb\015\012I put in my old IDE hard drive into the machine. The dvd drive that was already in the machine was connected onto the IDE cable and so i connected the IDE hard drive onto that same cable. The jumpers on both the dvd writer and the hard drive were set to cable select. The details for the DVD writer :\302\240PHILIPS DVD+-RW DVD8701\015\012for the IDE hard drive:\302\240SAMSUNG SP0802N 74.55Gb\015\012What i noticed was that to copy something from the IDE drive to the sata drive was extremely slow. Slower than it was in my old pc from IDE to another IDE. I copied about 25 gb of music from the IDE drive to the SATA drive which took me 2 hours. if i try and copy the same files back it is much faster but i haven't had the patience to actually let it finish and time it.\302\240Another thing i notice is that while copying all of this my cpu usage goes up to 100% and the whole computer stutters. \302\240here are my processor details:\302\2403.2GHz pentium 4 (HT)\015\012I have a 2gb stick of ddr2 ram. here are the details from dell. just to note, the page file size must have been incorrectly calculated because i set it to 3000Mb\015\012\015\012\015\012Available Memory \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240\302\240\015\01264.16 %\015\012\015\012Page File Size\015\012\302\240\302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\2409.8085Mb\015\012\015\012Available Page File\015\012\302\240\302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 43319 %\015\012\015\012Virtual Memory \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240 \302\240\302\240\015\0122047.8Mb\015\012\015\012Available Virtual Memory \302\240 \302\240\015\01298.02 %\015\012\015\012Memory Slot 1 [DIMM_1] \302\240 2048Mbnot sure what other details you would need so i'll paste some more:\015\012\015\012IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers:\011Intel(R) 82801G (ICH7 Family) Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - \01127DF\011Primary IDE Channel\011Intel(R) 82801GB/GR/GH (ICH7 Family) Serial ATA Storage \011Controller - 27C0\011Primary IDE ChannelI hope you can make sense of all of this\015\012\015\012\302\240\302\240 \302\240\015

Answers :

Yes, I'm afraid it's some form of difficulty in sending files from the SATA data-stream to the IDE ATA drive. It may be motherboard-specific, I don't really know. However attempting to send data between SATA and ATA drives is as I described above. Sending an 18-wheeler down a two-way highway and having the truck make a U-turn to reach the opposite drive.

Sorry I can't confirm if it's motherboard specific, I'm limited in that field of knowledge.
Hello,

That causes that switching from IDE to SATA connection..youR IDE drive can be read slower than the sata due to speed compatibility. The new PC now proccess slower to old hard drive or IDE. so thats matter. i experience that also so i remove the drive after copying all the files it and i set aside for storage purpose only.

may this help,

I Asked yesterday about upgrading my hard drive in my HP pavilion dv8315nr. The response follows: Your Hp DV8000 will take any 2.5" EIDE interface hard drive of any size.

Your system will accept up to a 500 GB hard drive, and have an operating speed of 7200 rpms. The trick to installing a new hard drive in OEM devices like HP, is to use the "initializing" installa
