    Default A600 HDD speed only 1,040,253 Bytes/sec

    Hi,

    I wile ago my A600 was suffering from slow HDD speeds with CF using FFS.
    Someone told me how to speed this up a bit but cant remember what to do.
    If I remember right, it was something in startup-sequence.
    Can someone please remind me, I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Are you using the plain A600 IDE controller or some add-on like IDE-Fix Express?
    A1200 (NOS) : 030 33MHz 128MB fast RAM (ACA1232) : Indivision AGA MkII : 8GB CF : RR USB : Ethernet
    A600 #1 : 080 V2 : 128MB fast : 2MB chip : Indivision ECS : 32GB CF : RR USB
    : Ethernet | A600 #2 : 010 : 2MB chip
    A500 : 68000 42MHz : 1MB chip : 8MB fast : 4GB CF | A500+ : 080 V2+ : 128MB fast : 2MB chip : 32GB CF

    A600 on board IDE.
    I was sure there was an improvement by adding a command to startup-sequence.
    But it was a couple of years ago, so I dont know.

    Thanks

    Are you using a Furia accelerator?

    If so, grab the furiatune program and add it to your startup-sequence and use its maprom functionality for a nice boost.

    The program also supports an ide boost option (not always compatible) you can try for an additional boost.

    For me, this takes things to a bit over 2.5mb.
