copying a 400mb file from the cdrom to hdd0 (seagate 7200.7, master, udma5)
or to hdd1 (samsung sp0411n, slave, udma5) gives about a 5MB/sec transfer
rate with a CPU utilisation of about 8% (checked using Task Manager).
Copying that same 400mb file on the seagate drive from one folder to another
gives me a 10MB/sec transfer rate with CPU utilisation at 12-15%
WHEREAS copying that file on the samsung drive (either copying off the
seagate/master drive or simply copying to another folder) gives me a
transfer rate of about 30 MB/sec, BUT, and this is the problem -- the CPU
utilisation is about 30% -- This is quite noticeable -- slighty laggy mouse
Any suggestions on how to resolve this OR is this normal behaviour with
