Question about On The Fly copying PLZ look

Postby rclayton17 on Mon Dec 09, 2002 2:30 pm

Hey all, I have a Toshiba M1402 which can read at 40X (nero says it can do DAE at 10x), and a rebadged lite-on 48125W (which i just flashed to vs08).

I never thought about it until when i tried to copy an audio cd on the fly. FYI, i had an HP 10x burner b4 i got the lite-on 48x.

Anyway, I could only copy it on the fly at 10x or around there, which kinda sucks :P. I guess i never noticed b4 because i had a 10x burner. I thought that since clone cd does raw data, it wouldn't make a difference between data and audio. Maybe im just confused :P

1. So i need another burner eh (for fast on the fly audio cd's)? Is that what you guys do?

2. just for the record, how fast can you guys do on the fly copying for data, and audio?

The easy solution is to not do the copying on the fly. It would probably be faster to use the Lite-On as a reader, make an image on your harddrive and then burn it.

I was doing some "on the fly" copying last nite of some data CD's. I have a TDK 48x CD-RW drive and a Pioneer 16x DVD that transfers at 40x for CD-Rom. I used the Pioneer DVD as the source drive and the max speed I could get was around 30x using CloneCD. Both the DVD and CD Burner are hooked up on the secondary IDE chain, so that's probably what's slowing down my "on the fly" copying. However, if you have one optical drive on the primary IDE channel and another on the secondary IDE channel, "on the fly" copying should be much faster. Just my comments on the topic.

I use a liteOn 163 DVD for my source for on the fly copying on the secondary controller by itself. Works just fine that way but I now have a 52x burner as well as a 48 just like yours so I may be pushing it a bit now.
You can burn at 40x or try burn from the HD off a image or however your software wants to do it. It'll be a bit slower but more accurate with now buffer stopages I'd guess.
Or you can just go as fast as it can and let the buffer protection kick in, either way it'll be a bit slower.
With my 48 the DVD keeps up just fine almost all of the time though, so I can do OTF at 40 to 48.
