For testing I am going to be burning a 1GB file and a 500MB file to DVD and timing the difference between the IDE and the SATA drives. I will also be burning a 100MB file to CD and testing the difference in speeds. Both drives will be tested at 16X for DVD and 48X for CD. I will also be performing a seek time, transfer rate (both CD and DVD), and a cpu usage test on both optical drives.

Testing System

  • Intel Core Duo E6600 Processor
  • 2 Gigs Kingston PC2 5300
  • Asus P5B Motherboard
  • Nvidea 8600GTS Video Card
  • 450watt Power Supply
  • 320GB Seagate SATA 2 HD
  • LG DVD GSA-H62N SATA and LG DVD GSA-H50N IDE Burners
  • Creative Fatal1ty
  • Windows XP SP 2

Remember, the lower the number, the faster, and better the drive performed on this test.

The lower the time in this case, the better the drive performed
