drops to 350KBS everything is fine until power
is applied to hard drive(s) both drives have been scanned for virus etc, very annoying and
very hard to find anything on internet that even
remotely refers to it - can any one help please

Coudl have a psu problem and the drives are drawing to much power. Could also have a magnetic interference when the hd revs up. Do you have wired internet or wireless? how is your conection set up. Are the drives shared on your network?
