Multiple burners

Postby EMT on Sun Nov 14, 2004 9:04 am

Please forgive the stupid noob question. But I notice in the signatures of many of you folks, that you have 3, 4 or more DVD burners. Are all of these in service at once? I'm curious because of the 3 PCs I've owned, each of them had room for only 2 external 5.25" drives. Are you guys all using external USB/Firewire enclosures? Do you have PCs that you've put together yourself with mega tower cases with 4 or more external drive bays? Or are 2 of your 4 drives sitting in the closet with all of the other PC gear you've collected :)

Most cases that you buy for home-built 'puters have 4 internal 5" drive bays, some have 6. The real problem is not the case, but where to connect all the drives.

Here's the local configuration:
One SATA CDRW drive perched on top of the case.
4 internal IDE burners connected to motherboard IDE channels.
One external firewire burner.

Piles of burners on the shelf.

One can never have too many burners. :wink:
Current drives running here: ND-2500A, ND-3500A, ND-3520A,
LTR-52327S, SOHW-1633S, SOHR-52A8S

judas priest! Forget about four burners. You could probably house four small dogs quite comfortably in that thing :o
