What's your IDE setup? :)

Posted Image

I can transfer about 600mb from one drive to another in about 40 seconds or so. I can't do on-the-fly CD copying from dvd drive to cdrw, because of the same ide cable its on, but not a major loss.

What's your IDE Setup and how does it benefit you?

Ross,

Interesting configuration you have there.

Two Plextor CD Writers and a DVD ROM.

Do you burn to both writers at the same time?

I'm gonna buy a Maxtor ATA133 PCI Card to max the performance of both my Maxtor and Western Digital drives, it ain't doing so well on my ATA66 Motherboard :)

Only costs about 25 from ebuyer.com, BARGAIN!

I did not know CloneCD would copy to two burners. I will try it this week. Very nice.

Today I was looking at a stand alone burner. It only had one CD-ROM Reader and one DVD/CD Writer. Not sure if there was a hard drive in it. Some have hard drives and some don't. Those that don't usually copy on the fly. Anyway, I did not price it because they usually cost too much anyway.

But, if I added another scsi writer to my scsi card I could burn two discs at the same time. Have you tried it with NERO?

AaronXP.

Good idea. That would save everyone big bucks who wanted the fast throughput for new hard drives without buying a new motherboard!

If there were a Tip of the Week category ...

That would be it.

Primary.....30GB Seagate Baracuda ATA 7200rpm

Secondary....Creative 52x cd rom MASTER
LiteOn 32/12/40 CDRW SLAVE



The CDRW manufacturer recommended this master slave setup with the cd rom.I have just read an article that making the CDRW the master will boost the reliability of the write features.Anyone have any other data or knowledge about this?

That is a screenshot from the software monitoring utility that came with the Promise Fastrack 2000 RAID. It just shows the array and nothing else in the system....
