Problem storing video files on 2nd hard drive

  1. Hello All, I have recently purchased and had a 500 gb seagate hard drive installed on my computer. The main reason for purchasing it was to put my video files, etc. on it. However, the video files that I have moved over to that hard drive whenener I try to play them they stutter and freeze and you can't watch any of them on the added hard drive. So, I partitioned a part of the drive thinking that might help and it didn't. So, I just need to find out why my movie files, etc. won't play on my second hard drive? Thanks all.

    Sound like you haven't given it a full format. Try use this way.

    Full format all the way, and take all the partition off and put only one partition...

    Partition #1 - NTFS - Cache Default.


    After reformat, try to create and write something on document and save it on your secondary hard drive.

    And did you set the master / slave jumper settings?
