I recently got Samsung EVO ssd, and installed my windows on the SSD and was very happy with it.

The problem isn't on the SSD tho - whenever i access some files on my original hdd(i didn't format it, its just there connected as usual and have used for 3 years w/o problem) Windows freezes and i have to restart the computer. I have not touched a single thing on my original hdd but simply added ssd to my desktop.

For example, let's say i play a video file on my original hdd. windows freezes but the video plays fine on my computer until i press anything on the video. Basically i cant do anything, can't click anything, nothing highlights when i move the cursor over the taskbar, cant run task manager. O wait, i can move my mouse fine, but that's about it. So going back to playing a video, video plays fine and i can watch it til the end if i dont do anything.

What's the problem?

transfer the files you want to a disc or to the ssd......... i think there's a problem because the operating system is on 2 drives/\....?????. you should have reformatted the drive.

Uh is there any problem with running 2 OS in seperate drives? i can just choose whether i want to run my OS on my SSD or hdd on startup from bios, and can run either fine, and i'm actually trying out the hdd version of windows and is fine right now

the only prob occurs when i access hdd when i'm running win7 from ssd. if i dont touch the hdd files, everything else is fine and super fast.

Might have not been frozen but just not responded to your clicks yet due to antivirus scanning, indexing, or superfetch, something like that.

Make sure you installed all the drivers you need and followed an SSD guide to disable or move functions off the SSD, like the pagefile.

Thank you i'll try to do whatever to optimize the SSD

this is my first ever ssd so i kinda panicked, and hopefully it doesn do this when i finish optimizing it :D 

btw when freeze happens i tried leaving it as it is, waiting for it to respond, and it doesn actually get out of freeze for hours - i tried it couple days ago :D
