    Hi.

    I have all my music on an external FAT32 drive. It serves Firefly reasonably well Firefly well performs poorly when ripping to it from a CD. Will changing to NTFS improve performance significantly?

    What kind of hardware do you run firefly on?
    If its a standard Mac or PC the used fs shouldn’t matter. Also, the performance gain/loss of that are doubtful. Seems you have a different issue going on there.
    How do you rip your CDs, and is your CD drive also external?

    If you are using a NSLU2 then hands off NTFS!

    OK.

    Firefly is on a Dell 1300 Inspiron laptop. CD drive is on the laptop. FAT32 disk is an external 320gb Seagate thru USB.

    Probably if you are ripping to the external disk while firefly is running, the usb bus is saturated.

    You might try turning off background scans (set rescan_interval to 0), and rip to the external drive like you have been. Then do a manual rescan when you are done ripping.

    I don’t think that FAT vs NTFS will buy you much, though.
