DVD-ROM, CD-RW and DVD burner. Can I use primary IDE for DVD-ROM/CD-RW as master/slave and secondary IDE for the DVD burner? Thanks for your help.

Get the answer peteb December 12, 2002 3:33:32 AM That's the only way to go - Raid on separate channels, burners as primaries on their own channel. Putting a burner on as a secondary is a sure fire route to more coasters and troublesome burning. -* <font color=red> !!
