thanks for replying, I kinda thought so but on the other hand I didn't think you could read from and write to a hard drive at the same time. Thats what confuses me about it being full duplex.

I'm quite sure it's possible or drives would be slow as hell. I could be wrong, but it just doesn't seem too practical otherwise...

Default UMmm...

It's one at a time. Either read or write but not both at once.
