poor I/O in win2k
I have Pentium Pro 180 with 160 MB RAM. Recently I installed win2K. I am getting very low performance on I/O. Most of the time I have CD burner under run even with 4x copying form HD. I have 2 IDE first has 2 HD and second has CD-ROM and CD-RW. ANy suggestion?
Have you tested your hd/cd speed with a benchmark tool?
You need to make sure your drives are using the interface as they should
You can use HDTACH2.61 (not free for W2K) for your basic hard drive benchmarks, (just search for it at google).
Or go to my site here and download ATTO's toolbox and test with it (it's free and more representative of real life performance).
For you CD drives get the benchmark suite from cdspeed2000 and test to see if all looks as it should.
Finally, what burning program are you using, are you multitasking while burning, any background apps, DirectCD or AIN software.
Let us know...
Thanks for reply... I am using goldenhawk cdrwin 4.x version. I have .BIN file on my hard drive. Twi IDE sockets each socket has two channel. Socket1 has two HD and sencond one has CD-ROM and CD-RW. my IDE is DMA not UDMA....I will test perfromance of CDburner and HD and post the result. I am using standard drivers provided by win2000 for IDE drive, HD and CD. and install ATAPI from adpetec
