Maybe and old, dead theme, but wanted to let you know what I tried today.
- PS/2 9595-S30 with P90 platform, close to standard
- 128MB RAM
- F/W-SCSI "Corvette" as primary SCSI
-- IBM DGHS09U 9.1 U/W SCSI HD
- Fast-SCSI "Patriot" as secondary SCSI
-- int. CD-RW LiteOn SOHR-5238S with converter to SCSI
-- ext. Exabyte EXB8505 5GB 8mm tape
-- ext. DVD Samsung TSST SH-S182M with converter to SCSI in a 3510
(IDE2SCSI converter are Yamaha / Acard V769970 50-pin USCSI)
- Win95C german
- DeepBurner 188.8.131.52
(Astonsoft Freeware version. Search "deepburner1.exe" on the 'net.)
- Sony DVD+RW media
Burned down my pictures directory from drive D: 1.1 GB of data within 25:09 minutes with no problems.
The DeepBurner software is pretty simple in style but does, what it is supposed to do. At least when it comes to burning data-CDs / DVDs. Handling is sometimes a tad awkward, but I think I had been used too much to sw like Nero or such.
The important point here is that you use a *decent* DVD burner which uses a buffer-underrun protection. The Samsung Super Writemaster even supports DVD-RAM, Double Layer and Lightscribe, but I doubt that I could use the latter feature, since none of the programs that I know run under Win95. Maybe under 98, but are memory and performance hogs. And who needs that anyway ?
The Yamaha / Acard IDE-2-SCSI converters do the rest of the trick. Today real SCSI burners are hard to find and if very expensive. The Samsung cost me 45 Euro (about 55 USD I think), the converter came from off Ebay for another 20 Euro. The burner software came from FileHippo for the costs of download time.
I think this setup would even run on a machine as low as a 9556, no matter if it is a SLC2 or 3. You could even burn files from off a network drive directly, however I haven't tried that yet, but it worked with the LG installed in my 9577 "Lacuna". I backed up data from a drive X: via 16Mbit Token Ring with no errors. Took an hour or so. But I used "Nero" there and turned off file buffering for small / network files.
Comments always welcome.
Very friendly greetings from Peter in Germany
