Wouldn't it be all? I would also think testers would use a secondary boot cf card. Wouldn't want to mess with my main install in testing.

  Other Info
  Firmware GOLD 3 1b
  IDE Splitter KA-60 (http://retroami.com.pl/index.php?id_product=175&controller=product&id_lang=1)
  A604N + RTC + Indivision ECS

Any thoughts on how to fix this issue?

The hard drives are directly powered from a 90w geniune PicoPSU

SCSI 1 : Various Compact Flash cards

There are no issues with data transfers when FASTIDE is not used. Test copying 650MB ISO and checking the MD5 hash

(Sorry for the double post i forgot to include the issue)

FASTIDE is on the A500 is simple ON/OFF switch.
On the A600 you will need to find the optimal "param" for your A600.
Also please mind to use FASTIDE for a direct 1to1 connection to 1 CF.
Never use it for CDROM or when you have 2 devices attached.

I use my V500 V2+ with a SATA to IDE bridge and a SATA 2.5" HDD. I get pretty good speeds already, but faster is always better! Looking forward to this :)

Can you please make Syspeed Drive test as well?

I assume that graph is misleading since it maxes out at 4MB/s while the number on the right says 15MB/s.

To get a 15058K/sec Transfer rate in 1720ms would require 25,900 bytes to be transferred.

I do not think that RawSpeed Controller 1.12 should be trusted.

With sysinfo or other benchmarks, the speed on my A500+ v2+ gold2.5 is: ~15mb/s on raw data read.
  I can testing with a four ide splitter, if you Want?

I have question about the speed for example.
On my vampire 500+ using 2.5 core i see read speed of 3 MB/S from my CF card look quite fast for me.
This is the standard speed, or it should be faster ?.

Use Vampiretool (http://wiki.apollo-accelerators.com/doku.php/vampiretool) and enable FASTIDE.
