Author Topic: How to find exact amount of bytes of 1 read/write full cycle?  (Read 3310 times)

Hi all,
yes, how can I find what is the exact amount of bytes sent by my HD controller to external bus, after 1 full read and/or write head cycle?

If I well understood from your articles, always 1 head per time reads or writes on 1 platter, at the speed of the Zone frequency.
But in reality HD always read/write a group of bytes/sectors/tracks per cycle, not just 512 bytes, right?
So, if I know how much is this exact amount of bytes, I can instruct software to read/write only this exact amount, optimizing at best the HD performances.. for example Wink

Thanks for your attention Smiley
