    I've had this P4P800 MB from 4 years ago. It supports two SATA
    drives. I've been using one Western Digital 500GB SATA drive
    since last summer and it was good.

    I just bought a new WD 750GB SATA drive. It works fine when it's
    plugged in just by itself. But when I plug in both SATA drives.
    The file copy from any drive to either SATA drive, between the
    two SATA drives, becomes very slow. Any idea? TIA.

    Does the new 750GB need jumpering to to SATA1?

    Google "WD7500AAKS jumper"
    Putting a jumper over pins 5 & 6 will limit it to SATA1 speed -
    default is SATA2 with no jumpers.
