[filmscanners] RE: Slightly, somewhat OT



Oh great, finally I figured out one using USB2.0 mass storage as I do.
I bought USB 2.0 HDD housing and run 40 GB Maxtor 7200 rmp drive into it as
my image bank backup
(beside of my two internal 60 GB drives arranged as RAID 2xMirror array for
fault tolerance).
However, testing his performance though Nero's drives test utility I get
only 13-17 MB/s performance which is confirmed through large data arrays
backups.
I somewhat disappointed by that since expecting the claimed 33-37 MB/s
performance from USB2.0
What is your experience with that ?

Regards,
Alex Z

I recently purchased an ADS Drive Kit that lets you put whatever drive
inside it that you so desire, and it is really easy to do.  I have about
three drives that I use besides the internal two + the burner and DVD
-roms that are installed.  It is USB 2.0, and will also run USB 1.x.
They also make a firewire version.  I don't know about firewire stuff,
but this has been a very timely purchase for me: it works great.

I want to purchase an external HD to back up my my scans as well as to
back up my entire system including the OS.  I just had a hard drive with
the OS crash and have lost all my preferances, patches etc and don't
want that to happen again and  so the extra HD externally seems to be a
good idea for back up as well as burning my scans to CD.

I just want to make sure I understand Firewire correctly as it pertains
to getting a back up drive.  I have a FireWire card installed and
working with my Polaroid SS 4000+.  It has 2 ports.

Do all devices that function with Firewire have an In and an Out port so
they can be put in a chain?  If put in a chain do all the devices in the
chain need to be turned on ?  Is there any downside to putting them in a
chain?.

Finally, if I were to only use the external drive infrequently for back
up and used the second port for a different peripheral, can I unplug the
peripheral and plug the hard drive to that port and use it or is a
specific port somehow dedicated to a specific peripheral?

Thanks

Howard
