I have a AMD64 3200 system with two HDDs, one is SATA, one is IDE. I’ve heard how most of you say, if you have two IDE Channels, use them both, so that your burner and your source HDD aren’t on the same channel. I did this, unfortunately, my HDD performs like pure crap on the Secondary IDE Channel, so it’s on my primary, and my BenQ 1655 is on the secondary.
I’ve been having some really bad burns on otherwise Great Media for the most part, I’m getting over 10,000 PIFs with TYG03 Media, which never happened before. My question is, could the fact that I have my 1655 on the Secondary Channel be causing this problem? And, since my IDE HDD is rarely my source drive for burning, can I slave my burner w/ my HDD?
