    Folks,
    I put a Seagate 2tb Barracuda Green (5900RPM, 64mb Cache) in my Series3. Ever since, it really doesn't like doing playback while recording. Really jerky, lots of 1/4 second pauses, audio mis-sync, etc.

    Does this drive just spin too slow? Should I look into different brands? I now know WD is preferred, but I'm curious if I'd be barking up the wrong tree.

    Suggestions?

    Thanks

    Speed is not the Issue. I've used 5400 rpm drives in my S3 boxes before with zero issues.

    Could it be block size, or anything to that effect?

    Or block alignment? Does the 2TB Barracuda Green use 4KB sectors like some of the new WD drives?
