i have a px12/4/32 SCSI with 4mb buffer..
I was writing a cd last night and at the same time attempted to start SiSoft Sandra. Apparently Sandra tried to access the recorder, so i got a coaster.
Now, if i'm not wrong, when writing @ 4x speed, the data transfer rate is 600kb/sec. So it would take about 5 seconds for the recorder's buffer to empty completely.
But the error message appeared almost instantly..
Could someone enlighten me here? Is it possible that the device buffer is malfunctioning somehow?
This wasn't the first time, it happened before with other programs too - launching windows explorer for the first time while burning in w98 produced A LOT of coasters
thanks in advance
