Well, here's something new...
I was surprised at the weird results so I did a little digging... Took me a while just to figure out which external enclosure I had.
Anyway it has 2 controllers... ALi M5621 for USB 2.0 and Oxford 911 for FW.
I found a firmware upgrade for oxford and I applied it.
Check it out. NO SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENT AT ALL, WHOOEY! :bigsmile:
Then I decided to hook my drive to USB 2.0. Now this is better!
Maybe now I'll be able to burn at 12x.
Even the benchmark graph looks better now, it can it 14x before it reaches the limit.
