Oh buddy, if I had a tower I'd totally look into jamming an eSATA card into it and using those enclosures... as it is, I'll be dropping back into IDE just to have a dependable drive that's faster than the one built into the iMac (plus the LightScribe feature). Looking to see if I can still return the SATA optical drive now....
Hey guys, This is an update, for anyone else who wanders down this particular path... So today my SATA to IDE host adapter arrived and so I slipped hooked it up to the drive, bunged the drive down into the enclosure and fired that contraption up.... only to encounter some problems. Toast 8 hangs at some point in the process of writing a DVD. Now, if you let it go for the length of the burn, until the drive spins down, then shut off power to the drive, click...
Oh my golly, I missed Fellowship's message Wow, how long has it been? And with a new little boy?!! (or was that one of y'all's doggie threads?)
We actually covered the Watermelon thing over at AN one time back in '05, here's the link to that story.... but of course it was something from back over here at AI... though it must have been from pre-blackout (unless there have been subsequent thread wiping blackouts since then).... I can't find any references to it in a quick search of the forums here... that makes me a bit sad
'Burb, we were trying figure out how to tell you this... but the whole "AppleNova is Down" thing was just a ruse. Have fun over here at AI, they're really swell people and they'll take care of you and everything!! Um, you don't mind if we keep all the pictures of Mars do you? They like space stuff over here too...
::smacks head:: Well I should have been able to do THAT math.... ::sigh:: Thanks!!
Hassan was living in London and had a penchant for having his really nice bicycle stolen every so often. The details are his own, but needless to say you don't want anything you love to be kept near his bicycle.... And as far as the server fix goes, I have my Poo Log to maintain over there but maybe I'll stick around here for just awhile to watch groverat snarl and stomp, I forgot how much fun that was....
I'm unfamiliar with how the write speed of optical devices coincide with bus speeds... this setup would have data pushed out at Firewire 400 speed, through IDE, translated into SATA, to a 20x DVD burner.... if it works at all I'll be fairly astonished.... what a laborious route!! The things we take for granted these days...
Oooo, thanks for the comparison talksense101, I was wondering if someone could give me an idea if I'd take a hit on the performance of the SATA drive. I wonder how long it'll be before the jam is broken on getting 5.25 SATA-ready enclosures on the street.... Turtle, having this burner up and running isn't a pressing problem, I think I can wait a month or two if the options open up and the prices drop down. The only places I'm seeing these things are on NewEgg.com and...
For anyone who wants to find out what Ron Paul is all about, he's currently on Meet the Press for an hour discussion with Tim Russert. I didn't know that he wants to pull out of North Korea as quickly as pulling the troops out of Iraq. That's kind of weird... there are certainly a lot of young people who are uber Sunshine Policy fanatics, but on the whole, the ruling political policymakers in South Korea want US troops on the DMZ because they fear what a still-aggressive...
