I am doing transfer's from IZ Radar drives to Pro Tools. There is a new software called DAMSEL that transfer's the data from Radar drives to other formats i.e. SDII, BCW or AIFF files. In our expermentation to find the fastest transfer time, I have some questions for any Mac users. We tested a Mac G4 powerbook running a 500 Mhz processor on a 100 Mhz bus with 256 ram. Then we tested a 466 power mac running a 133 Mhz bus and 1 Ghz of ram. We have been told by the makers of Damsel that the amount of RAM does not play a big part in the transfer speed. With the 500 powerbook a 6 minute song 24 tracks took 10 minutes and 10 seconds to transfer. The 466 took 8 minutes and 10 seconds to transfer. Anyone have any ideas as to why the 466 is faster that the 500?
