My MyBook has been happily working away with a new hard drive for the last year. I have no complaints but as many have posted here it is a bit slow. When I read up on some of the threads here people say they're getting 3 - 4mbs speeds. Mine goes no faster than 1.8mbps. Any idea why?
The hard drive involved is the same type (model number) as the one that came out of it so it should be capable of reaching 3 mbps anyways. I was thinking along the lines of the sata speed. I have't opened the unit but could the drive be set to sata1 speeds rather than sata2? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
