This review is from: Vantec Single Port SATA to IDE Converter - Model CB-SP100
Cons: New 500GB Western Digital runs at UDMA Mode 2 under Windows XP Home SP3. It's like running Windows from a CD.
Old Seagate 40GB IDE drive runs at UDMA Mode 5 as slave on secondary.
New drive scores ~33 with HDTach. Old drive scores ~96.
Setting jumper on new drive to force 1.5Gbs makes no difference.
Other Thoughts: Tried a registry fix to force DMA 5 to no avail. What gives Vantec?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Wouldn't know.
Cons: Won't make spinny.
Other Thoughts: I quit buying Western Digital hard drives years ago because I got tired of them failing. Lately I've gotten tired of replacing Seagate hard drives so I thought I would give Western Digital a try again. This is my second Western Digital drive this time around. One egg is really too good for this experience.READ FULL REVIEW
