I have recently installed a SSD/HDD setup in my Mid-2009 MBP. I installed a Samsung 840 in the original HDD location, my 500gb 7200rpm HDD into the optical bay, and did a brand new install on the SSD, moved over my files, reinstalled apps, and formatted the HDD that I was planning on using for media files. The problem is the HDD in the optical bay is SO SLOW. It takes 10-15 second just for a movie to start and if you try to jump to a different part of the video it will take 5-10 seconds just for it to start playing. This was the drive I was using as my primary disk previously and it was always adequate for playing the same files. The only theory I have could thing of is the problem being that the player is on a separate drive? When I run a disk speed test on the drive it is pretty normal for a 7200rpm drive, but real world access time is unbearable. Any help?
