Is it just that drive that is this "slow"? What file-systems are in use? None of these are substituted drives, right?

If it's just the one, try to allocate a new drive-letter.

do you have many files in root of O:?
try disabling antivirus, see if that makes any difference.

i have noticed that when you start to browse or use a dropdown to browse from local drives, windows automatically seeks teh rives listed for media and media label
so it would be teh zip drive that you have slowing it down
try disconnecting it or taking teh media out see if that helps

pepe, you really should have mentioned that the I: drive was no ordinary drive, but a removeable media. They are generally alot slower, atleat on the first pass untill the info gets cached. That way, the drive that comes after the slow drive, seems just as slow or worse.

when access the I Drive (Zip) Ffxp show the contents immediately. Another tip, EVERY time access to O: drive, Ffaxp need 30 seconds, not only the first time.

Actually, no, it's only fast because it's already cached. Try removing the zip and see how fast it is with no media, then insert a new media (ie. uncached). I have the exact same behavior with a OnStream-drive, but avoid the problem by making sure the slow drives get in last.
