Currently Building - Question about storage and optical

Hello. I have all my parts and I'm currently in the process of building.

My question is if I have 3 drives (1 sata HD, 1 sata DVD ROM, 1 IDE DVDRW), what should I set the IDE drive to:

slave or master?

I've tried to do research on the web but can't really find anything helpful. Thanks in advance!

  1. Master
  2. Depending on the controller, first drive is either master or cable select. Should always work with one drive on master
  3. Yep, Master. Or cable select and then connect it at the end of the IDE cable as a Master.
  4. Thank you all for your comments!
