Jumper Settings: Dual Optical Drives?

I've never used SATA opticals - always IDE Drives. Anyways, I'm going to build with both a DVD-ROM and a DVD-Burner. With IDE ribbon cables, I'd set Master/Slave - my question is, since SATA drives are on different cables (does it matter if they're SATA I or II?), do you set the jumpers to anything special - and do SATA drives even have those jumpers.

I'm used to choosing either Master, Slave or Cable Select. I don't have the SATA drives yet so I don't know if they have those jumpers. And I damn sure don't know what, if anything, to set them to.

I'd appreciate some advice/guidence in this area. Drives are OEM, so they won't come with any instructions, etc.

  1. Sata is point to point. They do not have jumpers. Connect as many as you wish, one per sata port.
  2. @bc4: This software interface is always being "messed with" by programmers in Paris (now) - so bugs pop-up and get resolved almost daily ... yeah, it sucks.

    @geofelt: I see your point. Thanks for clearing that up.
