I Think I Choose the Wrong Hdd

Recommended Posts

i got a 3tb seagate barracuda 5400rpm drive for my xbox. after loading it with games it became pretty sluggish to load things. games ran great when they finally loaded, though. i wanted something quiet and i know the 7200rpm wd drives can be noisey. has anyone else tried both a 5400rpm and 7200rpm to see what the difference is with speed and noise?

I only use the 7200 rpm drive and I have not noticed any difference speed wise  between the Startech and the chinese Sata 2 IDE adaptors .

You probably found it got slower the more you copied to it as well.

What Dashboard are you using.?

unleashx. the speed for launching a game improved itself for some reason. dashboard loads very slowly, though.

The dashboard is probably checking for any changes to the games,apps directories each time it loads so the more you add the longer it takes to boot.

Not that I am aware of but someone else might

 I have heard somewhere that you can do that with XBMC4Gamers.

The 2tb wd drive that's running the dragon dash is about 45 seconds to boot from power on.

The best I have seen was XBMC4Gamers on a 500 gig in 30 seconds from power on.

i had a thought come to mind about this. u said that the dash is looking for any changes and that is why it takes so long to load. is there a way to turn that feature off with the bios ini or cfg file? once i have all the games on the system that i want, i'm not really gonna need that feature anymore.

Hi, if you have got the time have a read of this thread it’s pretty old now but the tech hasn’t really changed and it talks about the issues of using a large hdd. Please login or register to see this link.

I have read about editing the start up animations to get the dash to boot quicker, it was mainly for users getting issues with the dash just hanging. It might be in the thread above, it’s along time since I read it.
