P5B Deluxe, eSATA with new 1TB Seagate 7200.11

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Connected with a Rosewill external enclosure, formatted via USB.

Turned the JMicron controller to AHCP (sp)? mode, and windows finally sees the drive while connected with the eSATA cable.

Maybe I'm confused, I thought I'd be seeing incredible transfer rates. Instead I think it's going to take an hour to transfer 300GB. OK, maybe it'll be closer to 20 minutes, the timer is slowly getting smaller...

See specs for origin drive I'm transferring from.

Thought I'd be seeing 3GB/sec. Yes I took the jumper off.

Any thoughts?

the fastest drives are are only about 100MB/s
300gig = 30,000MB
30,000MB / 100MB/s = 3000s
3000s / 60sec = 50 minutes

Thanks...that's about how long it took. I guess another way to test would be to do a USB transfer as well and see how long it takes. As long as I'm blowing USB 2.0 and Firewire 400 away then all is well.

So, what is the the 3gb/sec rating for?

The 3Gb/sec is the absolute peak transfer rate of the bus, not the harddrive.

Right, basically how fast the conveyor belt can move. But if your workers can only place sprockets on the belt at 30/sec or whatever, that's what you're gonna get.

I am here at work transferring via USB 2.0, and I can already tell I'm going to have to leave this machine on overnight.
