CD-ROM Toolkit Redux

CD-ROM Toolkit Redux — Russell Finn <[email protected]> noted in response to our article on FWB’s CD-ROM Toolkit that a recent MacWEEK report found no performance gain when using CD-ROM Toolkit with the AppleCD 300 drive, perhaps due to that drive’s onboard caching. John Baxter used a AppleCD 150 in his tests, and the MacWEEK article did find speed increases with older single speed drives and slower double speed drives. So once again, make sure you can return CD-ROM Toolkit if it doesn’t help you.
