Multiple Burners under Nero 5.5

I have a small music studio that i use and i was wondering a few things about nero

i noticed something about multiple burners.
i wanted to know A) how many i can hook up (ide not scsi)
B) what my limitations are for how many i can hook up, like processor speed, possible duel proccessor to handel as many burners in one machine as possible

More about multiple burners nero
  1. I doubt Nero is SMP-enabled, so unless each burn job is a separate process, more than one CPU wouldn't help.

    As for the max, it's probably in the help files somewhere. I suspect you'd run out of IDE ports before Nero topped out.

    I've never tried it though, so please let me (and everyone else) know your results.

  2. I read in Nero doc online that its limit was 32 drives.
    but i want to know what kind of hardware problems i will have with this.

    also just get a promise controller to give you more IDE ports.

    i relize that nero itself doesnt suport SMP but possibly some of the background stuff needed to run the burners and hard drives maybe benifit from a dual proccessor system.

    i am trying two burners this weekend which i am sure will work fine on the system that i am trying it on

    i will post an update

    Of course, but you only have so many PCI slots.

  4. if you have the need ( and most certainly the $$$) you can get cd copying racks with 4 or more burners and have them all burn the same data\music at the same time

  5. i have already looked in to that, not a fast alternative.
    i already have a good MB with raid that i can use a bunch of drives with so that makes it cheaper (150 or so for each drive.
    this is for CD duplication so i am looking for the cheapest alternative to the normal systems that would also alow me to upgrade drives to get the most CD/hr as possible.

    that and i am one of the people whos curiosity is so intense that is borders on anoying, so i just want to know
  6. you may run into power supply problems with that many drives burning at the same time.

    i went to the tomshardware forums and all i got was this lousy signature.
