Out of interest and as I can’t find a definitive answer elsewhere…
Has anyone achieved a 4 way simultaneous burn using SATA or IDE drives??
And I’m talking without the use of a dedicated duplicator!! lol
Could you please tell me the achieved speed, quality and PC hardware.
The Mobo/Ram/CPU can handle it, but i’m very doubtful the HDD can. the process of burning is to transfer data from HDD to the burner and then the burner will laser that stuff onto a DVD, but the thing with doing mulitple burn at the same time is that if the source is from the same HDD, it has to seek fast enough for 4 burners. @ 12X it’s about 16MB/sec, and 4 burner = 64MB/sec, it’s very very hard to achieve that seek/read speed on today’s consumer HDD, If you want to do that, you’ll need 4 HDD and each of the burner takes on 1 of the HDD.
Just a theory, i wouldn’t test it out haha, i’m not in to the bussiness of mass producing DVD/CDs.
