i have two cdburners on the same ide channel on my nforce2, if i burn on one and play a cd thru the other drive, it corrupts the burn. should i move one to the hard drives channel or will that cause write errors on my hard drive while im burning cds? or vice versa?

latest nforce drivers also. thanks.

I take that you're talking about on-the-fly cd copying? Well, I don't know what other people would say, but I have good experience when the two optical drives are connected to different IDE channels.

no i meant i will be playing a music cd in one drive, and performing a copy of a cd on the other one. the music will stutter once inawhile and then the burn will come out bad.

my original question is the same, would putting one of the burners on the HD ide cause HD write/read errors if it was accessing and the burner was doing its thing?

its a 32x burner and the other burner is a 4xcdrw/dvd in one drive. thanks

The answer is no. But this would cause the slowdown of hard disk access and burning process. If your burner doesn't support burn-proof, then you're very likely to have coasters. Also, since the system can't access all IDE devices at the same time, it's recommended not to run other programs while burning CD's.

I believe the 32x burner does have burnproof.
Would you leave the HD on its own IDE channel?
Just to make sure that its performance doesnt suffer ever?

I came to the conclusion its probably not a good idea to be listening to an audio cd while burning, no matter what IDE channel the drive is on.

Did you try reversing the master/slave arrangement for your CD drives?

No but I will do that now. I think the master is the high speed burner (32x).. if I remember back correctly I did it that way thinking it would get priority.

It shouldn't matter but sometimes ATA devices are fussy.
