Well I had to get a SCSI card so I went down to the local computer store and bought me this Iwill card which sells for around 60$ here in Sweden.


AMD XP 2200@2500
Leadtek K7ncr18d
256 mb DDR crucial PC3200
20 gig Maxtor 7200 rpm

Liteon CDRW 16*10*40
IWill 2930c SCSI card

We tested this drive with Nero Cd speed. We have test results from Reading a original cd, burned cd, rewritable cd and burning times so this will be really interesting. Burning times were taken while burning a Warcraft 3 cd from the harddrive which is 615mb big. Remember that the times that it takes to burn a cd differs from cd to cd and the size of the cd.

Here we have some specs on read speed of the Nero 5 cd that came with this cd burner. I have not compared this drive to anything since it’s not fair to compare a IDE drive against a SCSI. It’s not fair to the companies and not fair to you readers. This might be updated next time I review a SCSI CDRW.

AverageStartEnd 26,67X19,10X33,05X

Here we got a copy of the Nero 5 cd and as we can see the copy was read even faster than the original cd.
