how to maximize transfer rate for quantum fireball el?
Posted on 1998-10-11
I just bought the fireball 5.1G el disk.
it is configured as with the manufacturer parameters with "AUTO" mode, the bios detects it as mode 4, LBA.
the nominal transfer rate for mode 4 with this disk is 16MB/s as in QUANTUM homepage and for ultra ATA is 33MB/s.
I have vx M.B that supports up to 16MB/s at mode4.
the wintune diagnostics find the transfer rate as 4.4MB/s
non cachable and 14MB/s cacheble.
1. is this ok?
2. can I get my H.D go at the 16MB/s rate?
3. if I put the H.D on a board that supports ultra dma-
what should i do to use this feature? (a driver?)
pls answer an exac and a whole range answer- thanx.
