    Problems with video editing after upgrading to ssd.

    Baz_B

      Hi all,

       

      I upgraded my hard drive in my laptop to an Intel Pro 1500 series 180gb ssd. Before I had been using just a standard mechanical hard drive. Everything is of course much faster except for one thing - video editing. No matter which editing software I use, no matter what type of video I import, the preview window always lags (drops frames) This makes me unable to do any editing as the preview window is important to see what the video looks like. The preview window never used to stutter when I had my old HDD so I came to the conclusion that the problem must lay with the ssd. My specs are as follows:

       

      Lenovo G470 Laptop

       

      Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2410M CPU @ 2.30GHz (with integrated graphics)

      8 GB DDR3 Ram

      Intel Pro 1500 series 180gb SSD

       

      Any help would be appreciated.
