thanks, but do any of those programs support SSD's? I need to try both SATA and SSD, so I'll still have use for the two suggested, just need one for SSD's too.
Edit: nvrmind, it seems to be working.
SSD is a SATA device; how the data is actually stored is unknown to the rest of the system. So as far as software is concerned, they can't see the difference between HDD and SSD other than that SSD's have much higher performance; they still follow the same transfer protocol via Serial ATA.
Can you post a HDTune benchmark? Then we can see instantly if its running in PIO mode.
I'll get right to it once the seatools is done (which should be any minute). Might be a dumb que, but what does PIO mode mean?
