It must have been a bad drive. I tried it on other hardware with W7 and still no joy. XP and Ubuntu run fine. I thought it might be the copy of W7 so I returned it. Re-install of W7 and it was working. However, after about 43 hours of usage it started slowing.
I took the drive back and replaced it with another one not from the same lot number and replaced W7 again from when I went back East.
I am no longer having problems with it. It must have been bad lot numbers from Samsung and MS.
Your welcome. I believe in finishing threads with a result. To many threads with no ending around. Maybe this might be of help to others even as silly as it is.
Ill tell you what though, now that I have it working correctly this hybrid drive is really sweet. Takes no time to boot and works like a charm for editing, video, pictures, animation, database or however I can make it crunch hard. My only concern is it's life usage time. So ill keeping backups for a while.
