CD-Rom prefetch tweak

Im sure a lot of you know about this tweak for your cdrom/dvd drives:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\control\FileSystem\CDFS

32x 1792 00,07,00,00 00000700
40x 2240 c0,08,00,00 000008c0
etc

I cant get the tweak to work. In XP the values are in HEX, and Sandra CD-Rom benchmark says the prefetch is optimized for a 13x cd-rom. I've tried a few different values, but none work at all. Has this tweak changed at all with XP from 98/ME??

Thanks in advance,
Justin

try this

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem\CDFS

Look for that registry key, if not there, we must create a new key, then add the following values

CacheSize, this must be added as a binary value, then type in this value: ff ff 00 00

Prefetch, this key must be added as a DWORD value, then type in this value: 4000 hex

PrefetchTail, this key must be added as a DWORD value, then type in this value: 4000 hex

Both are valid, but the DWORD way is the way to go.

I tried those settings Qumahlin, but Sandra still says optimized for 13x, and only scores 1600 or so for my 32x. Back in Win98 (Win2000 also i believe) I didnt have these problems, and was scoring in the 2400 range.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
