I have a lacie f.a. by porsche 500GB fire wire drive which i have partitioned in to 3 parts.
I was previously running windows 7 pro x86 and every time i switched on my lacie drive all 3 partitions showed up pretty much instantaneously.
however, now i have switched to x64. first i had to go to Disk Management to import the HDD as it was listed as a foreign list. this works fine and i can access my drive fine.
however, now, every time i switch on the drive it take between 5-10 minutes to discover all partitions (however, one always shows up straight away).
any suggestions as to why this could be and how to alleviate the issue?
