Second Harddrive (7200rpm) unable to record 1080p with dxtory

So I've got a new second harddrive (Seagate 7200rpm 1Tb) and the write speed is slower than my main HDD which is the same make.
Why is this? COuld it be the cables?
All SATA 3

I can record about 75% on my main drive at about 45fps when set at 60fps in DXtory

  1. But can you record at 1080p at around 60 FPS on your main drive? 1080p is 2,073,600 pixels and 900p is 1,440,000. That could be the difference.

    it was my understanding that I could only record 1080p with another driver.
    Also i was mistaken I can record 75% on DXtory at about 40fps (I checked again)
    When in BF3 Im playing at full res, i get about 70fps but my record speed is about 24fps
    Why is this happening?
  3. Are you sure that the settings in your recording software are set to 60 FPS? And also, your CPU is very weak.

    And entertain me, and try recording at 1080p on the main drive.
  4. do you have the latest version of dxtory?

    ver2.0.123 (2013/06/14)
    ADD: Option "Include Overlay".
    MOD: The assembler codes are compacted.

    i dont think is a hdd problem

    Recoring at 30fps, Lagarith Lossless, YV12
    My primary Drive gets about 170/180 mb/s on dxtory
    my secondary gets about 140/150
    they are identical drives! Both are practically empty!

    as i said,

    my secondary gets about 140/150

    Im running DXtory 2.0.122 (Torrented)
  7. go here to download the latest release
    http://exkode.com/dxtory-downloads-en.html
    i think is more about the setting where the problem can be an issue
    and you need NET Framework 4.0

    First one (that performce well) is from PC specialist as a free replacment
    second one from eBuyer
  12. Are you absolutely sure they are the same drive?

    Also, don't talk about illegal activities. I'd delete your posts about if I was you, or edit it.

  14. Download hdtune and check your throughput there. Then you can say if it is your drive or not. If it still occurs, then you can check if you are pluggin your drive into the same set of sata ports on your motherboard as the other one is plugged into. I have found drastic differences between SATA ports, and even found Marvel Sata3 ports being slower than my intel Sata 2 ports before.

    Anyhow, 140/150 is perfectly acceptable for a 1 tb spinner, I recommend getting an SSD for faster capturing.
