  1. Either should work without much problem, though having both drives on the same cable will hurt your HD performance. If you can, run the DVD on your secondary channel with a different cable.

  2. I found on some drives like western digitals like CS over master or slave settings but what ever works.

  3. I have never used anything apart form master or slave. But if they dont work then you can allways try cable select.

  4. I almost always use master and slave, just to keep things certain. However, Cable select works well most of the time so it's up to you.
