    I just discovered that the Sudden Motion Sensor if you don't disable it actually works with the HDD in the Optical Bay Slot! I was in the process of putting my laptop on my desk just now, as I was bring it down fast I heard the SMS working as it did when I only had the HDD in my MBP! That is amazing news knowing SMS works regardless what the location of the HDD is within the MBP:) I can confirm this that the SMS is working for my HDD is because while I was moving my laptop I was watching a video located on my HDD, It paused and I tried this 2 times both times same result:)

    Do you think the SMS was causing the freezing within QuickTime?

    Nope made no difference, I disabled it and quicktime still freezes for 30 seconds each the regardless of the video format. Once approx 30 seconds have passed it continues to work like it should....but annoying part is that it does this with each video launch not just the first time the application is launched. All other applications on my MBP work fine. I did not have this problem before when I only had my HDD in the MBP. Im not sure where it went wrong.

    VLC player and MediaPlayer X from MacApp Store work 100% without any freezes, hangs or delays.

    I just did a little bit of testing for you.

    I have a Late 2011 15in MBP 2.4 with the Corsair Force 3 180 in it. I opened up a few quicktime movies and a couple avi's and did not get any hang up.

    What type of video file are you opening?

    Are the files on the SSD or the HDD?
