I have a 80 GB Seagate external hard drive and a 500 GB Maxtor external
hard drive, and I noticed that the Maxtor drive takes longer to spin up
then the Seagate does, now, I that is normal (or at least I think it is).
My question is, why does the Maxtor hard drive take longer to spin up then
the Seagate does?

In general it takes longer for a 7200 rpm drive to spin up than a 5400 rpm
drive. Scott.

Both drives have a max speed of 7200 RPMs, I forgot to say that in my email, sorry.
