IDE cd drive causes long load times
I recently built a computer that contains a sata drive, a sata dvd drive, and i put my old ide dvd in there as well. When the IDE drive is connected the windows loading bar passes about 30 times almost as if something is timing out before windows loads... However the drive works perfectly. If i unplug the IDE drive, then windows loads in roughly 5 to 6 passes. I don't understand why this drive makes the load times so much longer. Any suggestions?
