Why do I always get very low hard disk scores in SiSoft Sandra 2000?
A friend of mine had a Seagate 20 Gb U10 and later replaced it with a Maxtor DiamondMax VL20 20 Gb. I have read that the Maxtor is faster (storagereview.com), but the results he gets in S2000 are both very low and almost the same.
He is getting near 4500! I saw a bench in a web site with the U10 and it was quite higher (don't remember, maybe 8000+?)
Is it necessary to download some IDE drivers or something? Has the optimization of the disk something to do with the score?
