Got a Maxtor 3200 External HDD i have noticed really bad Read/Write performance in the past couple weeks. Copying a 600MB file from it to my 10K RPM Raptor HDD i am getting 900KB/S when before i would get 6-9 MB/S. If i power of the drive and turn it back on i then get 6-9 MB/S for 1-2 hours which is strange

Ran a test via HDtune as you can see below and you can see it is averaging 0.9 MB/S my Raptop drive averages 100MB/S !!!
