  • Vista and eSATA drive

    drivers for my SATA Controller on mobo is not in Vista driver list, so my 2xSeagate 120G HDDs is invisible for Vista, i installed drivers from a USB Flash, i don't think that may be a problem

  • Is Vista really slow?

    i tested some games in Vista runs just perfect

  • I have a question about English name

    i like my name in Italian: Giovanni Tongue Out

        nVidia GeForce FX5900 
        2x120G SATA1
       
    (OK its old, don't tell me)

    and its runing just fine, no lantecy no nothing, just works.
    Only that ~500MB of RAM is used, why so much? Also i don't like to see that patches (KB...) in WINDOWS folder, why they are there? Why thy don't fix...


    Works wonderful on my windows box.
    Specs:
    AMD Athlon™-64 X2 DDR400 PCI-Express
    3 GB DDR PC3200
    NVidia GeForce 7900 GTX 512MB (One of the best Graphics cards to my understanding)

    Anyway it works great so *shrugs*

    Why do people keep complaing about the performance of a beta? Beta 2 hasnt even been released to testers yet.
    why people is lying about Vista?

    I think of a lot of the memory usage is superfetch (besides some obvious beta things). My commit charge tends to be around 1500MB in Vista (I have 2GB RAM), much much higher than XP.
    now memory usage make sense.

    But I suffer no ill effects, and apps start up faster in Vista than they do in XP. From how I've seen Vista behave, it looks like it adapts to how much memory you have, a behaviour I expect from something like superfetch.

    On my current hardware, Vista is already faster than XP in many areas, and I suspect it will only get better.
    totally agree.

  • How to protect CD/DVDs from scratching?

    forget this:


    Hard-coating technology

    Because the Blu-ray standard places data so close to the surface of the disc, early discs were susceptible to dust and scratches and had to be enclosed in plastic caddies for protection.

    ...

    The solution to this problem arrived in January 2004 with the introduction of a clear polymer coating that gives Blu-ray discs unprecedented scratch resistance. The coating, developed by TDK Corporation under the name "Durabis", allows BDs to be cleaned safely with only a tissue — a procedure that can damage current CDs and DVDs. Presumably HD DVDs are similarly frail, as they are manufactured by the same process as the older optical media. Bare BDs with the coating are reportedly able to withstand attack by a screwdriver. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blu-ray_Disc#_note-5">[6] TDK have used the same coating on their current range of "Scratchproof" DVD media. Recently, TDK has made the DURABIS2 coating, which can withstand being grinded with both Sandpaper and steel wool. It will be used on the Blu-ray exclusively.

    dont use them, use a usb dongle or a memory stick, they are much stronger and not subject to scratching
    i use (write) CD/DVDs, only for backup (somehow i still scrath them Smiley ) software, music, movies etc. i don't use DVDs to carry data with me (only sometimes), for that i use my nano.
