The default HDT driver settings for the above are:
I attempted these settings, without any effect on the poor perf results:
also tried upping the max chunk size to 65535, (and a few other numbers) without any benefit. This (non aztec) flash drive, so far,has a max transfer speed of half a meg/sec on my SE/30.

Give me the address where to upload, and you can have it. ~3MB
Or buy a hard copy - they show up on ebone from time to time. Very good reading.

When I initialize the drive with HDT, it has a 500k/sec bottleneck. When I initialize it with a patched version of Apple HD SC Setup 7.3.5 (located here:
transfer speeds triple to 1700k/sec.

And why must one take a step at a time?
Or are you suggesting that by tweaking FWB's driver further, one could expect even greater performance from it?
If so, what are the specifics of accomplishing that?
ojfd wrote:Some more food for thoughts...
1. Have you configured / optimised your driver?
2. How does Aztec monster behave? Like SCSI drive or like IDE drive?
