SATA to USB DVD Burner
My computer is a tad old and only has 2 SATA ports and my two HDD's are using them. So, I am planning on using my last PCI slot to house a USB 2.0 PCI Hub with 4 external USB's and 1 internal and get a SATA to USB Converter. How slow would the DVD Burner be, if functional at all? USB 3.0 is a lot better than USB 2.0 and it should be out sometime in '08 so I can just get a USB 3.0 PCI hub and that should show some improvement but what do you think?
Edit: * USB 3.0 (Future version): On September 18, 2007, Pat Gelsinger demonstrated USB 3.0 at the fall Intel Developer Forum. USB 3.0 is targeted at ten times the current bandwidth, reaching roughly 5.0 Gbit/s by utilizing two additional high-speed differential pairs for "Superspeed" mode, and with the possibility for optical interconnect. The USB 3.0 specification is planned to be released in the first half of 2008, commercial products are expected to arrive in 2009 or 2010.
I think that means it won't be fully out till 2009 or 2010? If so, damn, but, I'll just have to wait. It's 5 AM so I can't think clearly about that lol.
