Quick read question

vbimport

#1

my plexwriter=40/12/40a reads cds no faster than 1400k/sec

my liteon=40x12x48 reads at speeds up to 7000+ k/sec anyone know why there may be that big of a difference in reading potential?? im usin clonecd4 beta 21 I wonder if maybe one of them is automatically set to DMA and the other is not. anyway.... your response would be appreciated

There’s no such thing as enabling DMA automatically by a program. Check your Windows device manager to see if the drives are using DMA or not. If so then check the settings you’re using with CloneCD. It could be that you overlooked some setting so the Plextor is reading slowly. Have you tried to just drag&drop the contents of the disc to your hard disk? Is the Plextor slower now too?

my plexwriter is my master drive.
my liteon is my slave drive.

primary ide channel = device 0
device type ----- auto detection (greyd out)
transfer mode----- Dma if available
current transfer mode- ultra Dma 5

                                device 1
                             device type-----  auto detection
                             transfer mode--- Dma if available
                             curren transfer mode- not applicable

secondary ide channel= device 0
device type----- auto detection (greyd out)
transfer mode—Dma if available
current transfer mode-Ultra Dma 2

                                   device 1
                               device type----- auto detection (greyd out)
                                transfer mode---Dma  if available
                                current transfer mode- Ultra Dma mode 2

as far as clone cd, the read speed is also set to max im a little confused on the device 0 and 1 though, I only have 2 cd rws one would be the primary and one would be the secondary soo what is the device 0 and 1 for each that would be 4 right?
