sponsored links

 
When burning on the fly it tells me my source and destination drives are on the same IDE.Works OK,I only have a 4X burner. If I change to a high speed burner will this make any difference. Thanks for any help

some people say that it does matter others say that it makes no difference - you'll just have to try it and see

On many systems, if you burn at 16X or higher, you'll need to move the reader to Primary Slave and keep the burner on Secondary Master. In fact, it's recommended to do so. But yinyan is correct, some systems will burn OK with the 2 on same channel.

This is how mine is set up, works fine.

Make sure your reader reads at twice the speed of the writer. Even drives rated at 52x are not true 52x readers. That is the theoretical maximum speed. They will read data and audio at different speeds. Run Nero drivespeed and see!

If you want to copy on the fly, you will find that the writer stops and starts if you try to write anything over 16x.
I always copy to image first and write at 24x, does'nt take that much longer and you won't make so many coasters. (i've made a few of them in my time!)
