Saving Memory by adjusting your CD-ROM CacheBy: Arie Slob
If you don't use your CD player that often, your system might be assigning memory for it's cache which you could reclaim. Here is how:
- Right click on My Computer
- Select Properties
- Select the Performance tab and click the File System button
- Select the CD-ROM tab
- Note how much memory you are assigning to the CD-ROM cache and adjust as you would like
The Minimum is 64KB (No read-ahead selected and the slider to Small) and the maximum is 1238KB (Quad-speed or higher and the slider to Large).
