Run HD tune, your Reads and your access time probably suck real bad.

It could be that Vista is taking a bit to index it as well. One it gets it indexed it should speed back up.

ok i run hd tune pro 3.10 on benchmard (read) my results were

tranfer rate: min - .9 mb/sec
max - 107.3 mb/sec

access time 37.3ms
burst rate 22.9 mb/sec
