Has anybody used the following chipset based PCI ATA cards for their optical drives (burning) in UDMA mode under Windows XP:
- ITE IT8212 (from Compusa, Inno, etc.)
- Acard ATP865 (from SIIG and Acard)
If so, can you report your maximum burn speed and CPU utilisation when burning?
I really need a working PCI ATA card for my PC that is NOT based on the Silicon Image chipset (can’t use that one, already one of those onboard, two don’t work at the same time).
I’d appreciate all comments from those with experience on the cards.
PS I’m asking because these cards are mail order from aboard (expensive) and just ‘testing and returning if it does not work’ is a costly proposition.
