Topic: "Drive caches audio data" option in EAC

I noticed that in a lot of EAC logs posted here this option was disabled so I decided to verify if my drives really needed it on.
According to Hydrogenaudio's wiki (http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php … ve_Options) EAC's caching detection is not reliable so I used cache explorer (http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=184487).
Here are my results:

Since two of my drives cache more than 64kB ("EAC will never request less than this amount while ripping") the option should indeed be ON for them.

I think this information should be in the guide since it could result in false good dumps.
