Delay In Accessing Hard Drives?

Hello, I've been having a problem for a while now that I've decided should probably be fixed, and it is this.

Whenever I go to access a hard drive, that isn't my SSD, I'll click on it or a program will try to open files from it, and nothing will happen for a few seconds, then I hear the HD's disk start spinning and it will be able to access the files. Is this just something that happens in all computers, or is there a setting I can change so that the HDs are able to be accessed faster?

Thanks for any help.
