Discreet Stone Questions.

Unread postby Timberoz » Sun Nov 09, 2008 7:29 am

I am looking for the existance of a downloadable manual for the Discreet D9 Stones.
Also I am not sure of the model but the larger brother is it the R38? with the standard scsi connections (not fibre)
Can anyone tell me why or how the D9's were limited to 9 Gig drives? Was it all that Discreet would supply for these arrays or was there a firmware limitation inside the box? Would the D9's give 80mb transfer using both scsi inputs & 8 x 9 gig drives operating?

Last question, I promise, Were the D9's only sold for the 02 Effect systems or were they used with Flint & Flame on Octanes when they were sold as a system?

Thanks in Advance.

Hey Craig,

See if the info you are looking for is here:

Just click to the left of the topics and another menu appears.

I think the Stones you mentioned are R37

The D9 SCSI Stones are D1000 and D2000 as mentioned here:
