About a year ago I bought two identical Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB hard drives. Today one of the hard drives I use for storage started acting up and whenever I loaded anything from it, my computer would slow down like crazy. I used HD Tune and it shows a transfer rate of 4mb/s for maximum, minimum, and average. My other hard disk works at 75mb/s average. Any way to see if this is fixable, or is it destined for an RMA?

Plug it into another SATA/PATA connection and see if the problem persists, make sure you turn on the connection in the BIOS. It sounds like a seek error. Copy all important data ASAP and contact Seagate for an RMA.

Different controller worked. I think I had both plugged into the RAID Controller (only two connectors), and I stopped using RAID a while ago. It's plugged into the other controller on the motherboard (has 4 connectors) and it works like it should now.
Thanks
