Thanks everybody,

Now that I think of it, this is not the first time I've had to argue with
MBR settings recently but that don't make it any easier to believe how it

I have now tried everyway to kick-start the MBR and eventually downloaded
the 1.44MB diagnostic iso from Maxtor.

I recommend everybody who thinks their 2Gb is acting slow should obtain
the HD drivers for their PC and glory in running speeds circa 1988 while
running  all the write tests :)

Next stop - low level format as it seems the last step untried.....
Anybody care to stop me before I pull the trigger?
