Slow copy from CDROM
a simple inquirie, that I'm sure you'll have answers on :)
I have a problem with a cdrom of mine,
It work perfect Usualy... except under linux :)
I'm trying to copy from the cd to my HD, and the transfer rate is from 1.5Mb (rarely) to an average of 50Kb/Sec... which doesnt satisfy me at all!
I though that mabye the dma wasnt on... but it is...
I dont really know if any other param could change something... so here my reading on hdparm...
Thanks a lot for your suggestions
HDIO_GET_MULTCOUNT failed: Invalid argument
IO_support = 1 (32-bit)
unmaskirq = 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 256 (on)
HDIO_GETGEO failed: Invalid argument
does this happen with only a certain cd? or all cds?
pretty much every cd's..
most of which arent working well are copyed one...
all in perfect "readable" condition
what's the speed of the cd drive?
That is weird... I don't think this is it, but check what the dma settings are in the BIOS.
