    Hello all
    I got a AMD 64 bit 3000+
    GA-K8N51GMF-9 mobo
    512 mb ram
    bought a new 160 GB Sata
    booting from it
    also attached is a 160 GB ATA
    now the speed of SATA disk is very slow
    applications take a lot of time to open
    boooting is slow
    Is there any problem is using ATA disk with SATA
    Regards

    Check in Device Manager if the SATA HDD is running in DMA mode ... if it is shown as PIO mode then from Device Manager Uninstall the Channel to which SATA HDD is attached and on reboot the SATA HDD should work in DMA mode at normal speeds.
