SSD and HDD lag? I have my songs on my 7200rpm HDD,and AIMP3 on my ssd.When I play songs,it frequently lags.I don't defrag my SSD,only my HDD.Defraged but still lags.What do /g/ tards? Move AIMP3 to HDD or songs to SSD?
Thanks anon for reply.I have a 256gb Samsung EVO ssd,and I have around 80gb of music files(flac,m4a,aac..etc) I'm now trying to weigh my choices.Listen to lag free music and have very little space left,or lag shit music but have some space left.What's your opinion on this,anon?
if your music is "lagging" (i presume you mean that they take too long to start or that they skip), then it's something other than just the fact they're on a hdd
hdd's aren't as responsive as ssd's, but they're not nearly THAT bad
a typical hdd can seek to a song in about 150ms or less, then load the entire thing in a split second (a typical lossy music file is around 5MB, and a typical hdd can do 80MB/s+)
either it's a software issue (too much cpu load, player is fucking up, etc), or there's something actually wrong with your hdd (might be dying)
I've never had a similar experience. The HDD should be more than fast enough to read some audio files with no hitches. Test your HDD first (Crystal Mark, also check the smart data) and just move a couple files over to the SSD and see if that solves it.
I'd say something is wrong with the HDD, this could be a warning its about to eat shit and die killinh all your data.
yea, do some tests, run a SMART test (SMART is a firmware feature on any modern hdd/ssd which has self-test and monitoring functionality)
if there's something wrong then it's best you back it up and replace it as soon as possible
