did you install a 80 wire cable?  80 wire cable installed, it's not the starteck adapter - a cheap one known to work.  Everything else works fine, just Coinops slow loading roms.

is the hdd brand new?  Various used (both new and used), various sizes 500gb and up.  Currently using a Hitachi 2tb HDS5C3020ALA632

which model is it? 1.2 - TSOP flashed evox - also have various other mobo types (TSOP and chipped), same results.

what was your previous configuration? what size of drive? Various, IDE's - last was a 500gb IDE. CoinOps is fine on IDE.

how did you build the new drive? 64k clusters, f+g

which version of coinops? v8 (massive)

I suspect the issue is 100% related to the PATA/SATA adapter... just wanting to know if others have the same issue.

Adapter is this one: Please login or register to see this link.

 

i think you're right. likely one of the bad adapters. those things are strange. its the weirdest thing when they die over time. i dont get it. 

i have a 2tb drive that shows no bad sectors but takes forever to load. none of the data is corrupt tho. i ftp from that drive to good drive and coinops loads fast. 
cant remember precisely which model it is, but it is hitachi. 

i'd bet the adapter first...

plus the price on that adapter is silly. order from china for less than half. but make sure you order 10 because half will be straight to garbage

I do order them from china - this was just happens to be the one on Amazon.... but that aside, are the more expensive ones (eg. startech etc) exhibiting the same behaviour?

This maybe a silly question but what is your definition of slow?

Do you have to wait a few seconds for things to load or are we talking over 30+ seconds.

get a startech adapter they are quality, and in my personal opinion nothing else should be used with drives 500gb and up. those cheap adapters are hit and miss,

      I can’t seem to find a clear answer anywhere. Do I remove the jumper pin from the sata HDD since the sata/ide adaptor has its own jumper pin selections? I just need to know the configuration so I can clone it using chimp. Any help would be appreciated thanks!
