Inspired by a discussion with The Master in the “external enclosures” threat I want to know how many of you, my colleagues, can (and do) burn with more than one drive at the same time!
What drives do you use for that?
Which hardware setup do you have (controller, motherboard, etc…)?
Myself, I usally use my Aopen 1648AAP to rip while my Plex Premium or my Nec 2510 burn a CD/DVD.
Burning with both USB drives at the same time already is a bit complicated (can’t work flawless during that, but it works at least).
Aopen 1648 AAP - Primary Master on Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe (Nforce 2 Ultra)
BenQ 1640 - Secondary Master
Plextor Premium - Mapower USB Case (KC51C1) Genesys Logic E-04 chipset
Nec 2510 - Mapower USB Case (KC51C1) (drive is only 8x DVD-R)
The Plex is connected to the ASUS MB
Nec is connected to an additional 3x USB2.0/2x Firewire controller card from Digitus (VIA chipset)
My HDD’s are on an Adaptec 1200A Raid controller running at Raid-0. (about 65MB/s in SANDRA).
