whats the fastest you could hope to burn a dvd at otf,using best
dvd rom/writer (aopen,liteon,pioneer) as reader,and 3500 as writer,

and would connecting reader to a control card (not promis)
allow faster burning


#2

Why do you want copy on the fly.

It’s seems more reasonable to copy via a harddisk, it will spare you from a lot of trouble.

The best result with optical devices, are connecting to the on board ide controller.

i burnd a 4,7 gb dvd to another dvd 4,7gb… my media only goes to 8x but at that speed i could burn OTF… but i must say i have a extra ide controller… and every drive is on 1 cable…(all master)
sys specs in sig


#4

Stupid question really ,should have gave it more thought,already know that read speed should be at least double write speed which thoeretically means otf burning at 8x,
what I really wanted to know is can I attach a reader to a control card and get the same transfer results as if connected to an IDE channel,already tried a promis control card but found that not to good,
are their any cards that are ok for this purpose and is it better to use a raid card or just an ordinary control card.

raid cards are very bad “controller cards” for aspi drives like dvd or cd burners… better is a normal ide controller… or you put all your hdd´s to the ide controller and the burner and reader at the controller of the mainboard…

for example:
i have a ide controller
hdd1 on ide port 1 on the mobo
nec 3500 on ide port on the mobo
hdd2 ->ide card
toshiba -> ide card…
so all is master…

ps: i have tryed to put the nec on the ide card and the ide card slowed the burner down to multi word 2 (~11x dvd read/burn)…so look at the dma or the transfer test…:wink:

“aspi drives”… :confused: There is no such thing.

More likely our friend had ATAPI drives in mind. :stuck_out_tongue:

BTW, here is one link. Kind’a old but still useful. :cool:


#7

oh dame
yes i mean ATAPI drives only in old windows or dos you need ASPI drivers for the ATAPI DRIVES… lol


#8

12x on the fly is top speed i recon.


#9

The master @ thats pretty much the setup I’m looking for, except I have one hard drive and 3 optical drives
@ pinto2 thanx for the link ,gives some makes that might just work and I just found one on ebuyer for £16 that I think I just might try.

@celeb
