Multiple Drive Concurrent Burns

Recommended Posts

Does ImgBurn support burning the same image to multiple drives concurrently? I'm thinking of picking up a second burner as most of the burning I do is backups that HAVE to have 2 copies (one stored on site and one off site)

 

And if it does what kind of limitations are there as far as IDE channels? Do both drives need to be Master on their own channel, can one be a master on one channel and the other a slave on another channel, can they share a channel as Master/Slave. etc. etc.

You can run 2 instances of it, AFAIK. To reduce risk, I'd have the drives on different IDE channels.

won't work well at all, maybe with a raid stripe, works fine with 2 hard drives burning seperate images to 2 dvd burners

Yes, you will need RAID0 or 2 seperate hdd with one image on each drive. Burning 2 images off a single drive to 2 burners will result in constant buffer problems because a single drive's random read speed is not fast enough to support 2 burners. Also keep in mind that it will not work with partitioned drives because technically it's still one drive. Make sure your burners are on different IDE channels as well.
