Hint: There's also SATA drives in the machine this log was taken from.

 

I only have 4 boxes with sata raid chips and my burners are on channels 0 and 1

 

2 of the boxes have dual sata and dual pata, but they are turned off in bios

and for a 12x burn that's way too long indicating problematic ide drivers?

lol that's a very open ended question chewy!

 

It's kinda hard to tell what you were asking for exactly!

 

If you're on about the SCSI ID address (the [x:x:x] one), yeah, just add some more controllers into your machine!

 

 

As for the speed thing, no, that doesn't indicate anything to do with drivers.

You've got a max of 12 and average of 4. To me it looks like it stepped up and stepped down again. Without seeing the write speed graph, it's hard to say - but that's what the graph is there for. That time is about right for a 4x burn though.

I had the same problem with burn times when i had nvida ide drivers installed, of course it was complicated

by sil 3112 serial drivers that were also bad(damn asus)

 

Now shamus is using a fairly recent well known burner with a cruddy but well known mid, If ImgBurn

tells the pioneer to write at 12x why would the average write speed be 4x?

Graph or no graph, simple math.

I dunno but you can't instantly blame the drivers.

 

There's obviously no real speed issue or it would never have reached 12x in the first place.

 

People blame Nvidia and Intel drivers way too much.

Who do you think made the first ones that ship with XP or whatever?! Microsoft aren't going to have done it, it's not their place to.

Yes ok, their first few releases may have not been so good but XP has been around for years now and I doubt the drivers still really have problems. Just because they were bad 3 years ago doesn't mean they'll still be bad today.

 

I run Intels latest chipset + ide/sata drivers (have done forever!) and don't have any problems. Same goes for my AMD machine that's running the Nvidia NForce 4 drivers. That said, it doesn't seem to have installed the PATA side of the 'enhanced' drivers. Those are still registering as standard.

 

The graph is handy because it can help show the pattern. It could be a perfect stepdown, maybe shamus's G05s aren't up to much, who knows. The WOPC on the pioneer is also pretty aggressive and checks discs more frequently than any other drive I've seen.

that part is the key

 

It seems most of the problems come with outdated drivers being installed onto XP sp2

Nope. It's pretty good actually. K:\ drive is a shared RAID drive I dump my ISOs onto for burning. When I get a few on there I burn them using 4 machines at once. So... to get 4x across a network while 3 other machines are also requesting large amounts of data from the same drive is pretty good.

 

I do it this way mainly because each machine has different hardware, device drivers, OS and all that other crap that may be buggy. The more things ImgBurn can be tested on, the more reliable Lightning's program will be.

corn warned about your network, a 4x burn is pretty good on a 100 base, really need a gigbit

lol so that's 4x over a network!

 

making about 22mb/s if you're doing 4 of them at once.

 

I don't think that's too bad at all.

It is gigabit. There's so much crap plugged into the network that I need it. :)

Yeah. I'd like it faster though. Did you have any luck increasing the packet size (not packet volume) over your network?

I don't think the network is the problem here. Copying files over my lan gives me about 40 - 45mb/s.

 

I think reading 4 different images off your raid set is just too much random accessing to give you anything higher than ~20mb/s

Agreed. BTW, a couple of days ago one machine went from a 20MB/sec to 10MB/sec with no changes to drivers, hardware or anything else and has stayed there. Fooking thing. It's one of those Marvel Yukon type thingies on the m/board. Ever had one only partially die before?
