So, after reading the advice about hard drives for a Giga and Sonar set up (OS on C,
Sonar audio on D, Giga samples on E) I bought that thrid hard drive.
Yikes!! I am not sure how to hook this bad boy up (80gig 7200 IDE Internal)
My pc\'s mother board has 2 slots for IDE ribbon cables. The first says PRIMARY...
That hooks to my D drive as slave and the jumps to my C drive as master.
The second says SECONDARY (go figure)...
It hooks to my CDROM and the jumps to my CDR drive.
So, I am thinking that my CDROM drive is getting wacked tonight?
Whats the best way to add this 3 hard drive?
UPDATE: Last night I removed my CD ROM drive(seconday slave) and replaced it with my CDRW drive (was secondary master now, set to secondary slave)..Then I hook in the 3rd hard drive and made it, secondary master...
Here is whats up.
Windows boots fine.
System still fast.
I click on MY COMPUTER
I now have C D and E drive.
But, when I try to copy a file to it (say a 60mb file)it takes forever and the if you move your mouse its like the mouse is drunk...after the file copies...it all goes back to normal.
So, any thoughts? Also, could I just put my pc back to normal and get an external drive/
Is USB ok for audio rec?
Hi. USB would not be acceptable for anything other than raw storage or backup purposes. It\'s too slow to do anythign in real time. You need either IDE, Firewire or SCSI. (IMO - in that order...)
You\'re new drive should have worked. Seems like you must have remembered to partition and format the drive. Is that right?
Well the fact that you have no crackles and no crashing probably have nothing to do with USB - I am pretty sure you\'d get the same performance from normal IDE And the fact that I sometimes get MSG32 crashes is simply because of bugs in GigaStudio....
