HELP - people with 2 hard drives

  underworldmagic 20:10 22 Dec 2004

please if you have 2 hard drives can you please answer this question

please tell me if this happens to anyone else here

i have two SATA hard drives

(1) 74GB Raptor SATA (main windows drive) 2 months old
(2) WD 250GB SATA (used for storage) 1 month old

just recently i have noticed that when i go to shutdown my computer, the screen says saving settings, shutting down etc and i hear that the WD250 hard drive turns off first while the windows shutting down screen is still on the screen (hearing a slight quite whirring) , then the raptor switches off along with the system.

this never used to happen first. i used to get all the drives going off at the same time with no whirring, just a quite switch off.

does someone know why the 250gb raptor is switching off first (with light whirring sound), and then the system?

please help.
