One possible fix for a slow third-party hard drive
Authored by: dougc on Nov 29, '07 07:47:16AM
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you... My old Toshiba drive was starting to make funny noises, so I upgraded to a 7200K 80GB Seagate, on my Pismo PB. (BTW, I would recommend anyone running an older PB to dump their 5400K for a 7200K drive) The performance improvement was awesome, but like you, I had this funny delay (minutes) when coming back from sleep. When I put the drive in, I did notice the jumper, but never thought much about it, and never thought a CS jumper would cause a problem like this. Nonetheless, I removed the jumper and things are back to normal. Thanks again for taking the time to post this invaluable piece of information, I really appreciate it.
