Here's a technical problem I've run across that maybe someone out there has a little knowledge of.
I have two drives in my system. When my original drive began to fill up, I bought a nicer, faster, bigger second drive, and installed it as a slave to the first. I moved all my sample library over to it, since that was what was taking up so much room. I basically had no choice once I got the extended Battery library.
The problem is that programs that play samples from the second drive have very slight glitches in the sound when using these samples. Battery, Kontakt, Stormdrum, even games such as City of Heroes. I've also had glitchy playback of large Quicktime movies, and horrible performance within Sonar if I have a movie file loaded that exists on the second drive.
The glitches are usually small, but testing by moving things to the original drive shows that it's only when the app is on one drive, and the samples on another. Is there something I should know about setting up drives that would alleviate this? Optimally, I would own an even larger drive as my main, and have it contain everything I needed sound-wise. But this option means more money, and a LOT of work moving things around.
Any suggestions on what I might try here?
Thanks in advance.
