Faster File xfer. USB 2.0 or Ultra IDE on PCI controller card
Posted on 2004-08-03
I am currently running Windows XP-PRO on a Dell P 4 2.4 1 gig. Internal 80 gig HD
Case has no more slots.
I have 4 external Hard drives
1 WD 250 Gig using firewire port
1 Maxtor 40 Gig using usb 2.0
2 WD 160 Gig drives in home built USB external enclosures
I am using this machine as a quasi file server for an external LAN based DVD player as well as burning many DVD's
What is the best way to get faster throughput for the DVD burns. Have the burner and IDE drives all internal (build a new machine with all drives internal??)
Any suggestion on a basic motherboard with more than 2 IDE channels on it.
