Access 1 HDD causes lockups.

Locked

I have XP Home,3 HDD's(1x15Gb IDE and 2x120Gb SATA)with 1GB RAM,AMD 2600 CPU.

Earlier this week,my C: hdd(carrying OS and progs)SATA hdd refused to reboot after restart(trying the Repair option,got a message about filesystem being corrupt so couldn't continue repair or even format from cd)I had everything installed onto IDE hdd,so simply reconnected this hdd and booted up)formatted the offending(SATA) drive(in Win)and everything was fine,until I tried transfering video from camcorder onto the SATA hdd(now E:)and every few mins,the pc locked up causing a gap in the vid transferred.I initially blamed MM2,but I installed Pinnacle Studio 8 and tried transferring video again,only Studio said the E: hdd didn't have sufficient speed to copy tape.I set the video to load into the other SATA hdd(D:),and everything was running smoothly,until I attempted to test the E: hdd with Aida32.Then the vid capture froze,the sound repeated one bar,and the mouse pointer/keyboard froze.Does this indicate the imminent expiry of E:(SATA) hdd,they are both approx 6 mths old?

do you have smart enabled in the bios?

in aida32 click storage/smart to see the values

i would try updating pinnicle,windows from windows update and your chipset drivers from the motherboard website maybe.

ps.also run a disc check

start/my computer right click the hdd/properties/tools/error checking

tick both boxes and restart the computer.will take a while.

No probs with Pinnacle or any other software as long as the results are run to/off D: hdd(or C: but it often gets XP muttering about being full)The problems ONLY occur when accessing E: hdd.I would like to return to a SATA only install(have had major grief previously,which appeared sorted when I created a small partition on SATA to carry the OS only)so I can disable IDE channel,as video editing on SATA only takes much less time.SMART info...

also reveals no probs with the hdd's

  hugh-265156 16:52 12 Dec 03

well i dont pretend to understand it all myself.your drive temperature seems slightly high at 43C but im only going by my own which is 24C and its a slow 5000 rpm ide jobby.guess faster drives are hotter.

any errors reported in control panel/administrative tools/event viewer under the application and system tabs?

I had forgotten about the error logs,but from the above it looks like the latest SATA driver(from Win Updates)is a bucket of pooh.I'm off to see if I can find a "middle" SATA driver,as the one from mobo cd isn't WHQL certified,and the newer one seems to kerry packer my install of XP.There was another SATA driver from M$ that worked perfectly on my puter,this problem only appeared after a recent d/l of updates.

  hugh-265156 17:29 12 Dec 03

i have got an "ntdll error" in event viewer myself receintly.

"the faulting application failed" it said,no fixes from MS and happened when i clicked "start/explore all users" every so often.

hasnt happened an over a week though.

  Chegs ® 17:39 12 Dec 03

Found three different SATA drivers,so I'm gonna copy them to floppy then try installing XP to SATA hdd,and if it dont work,I simply reconnect IDE and carry on searching.Thanx for the reminder about error log.

  Chegs ® 17:42 12 Dec 03

Meant to add,these SATA hdd's run damn hot.Before I installed all NINE fans,they used to run around 50C(surfing)+65C(editing video).
