I have a Liteon DVD-ROM and 52x24 CDRW drive. Currently installed as master and slave respectively on secondary IDE channel, with one 80GB HDD drive on the primary IDE channel.
I have recently purchased the Sony DRU-510A DVD+/-RW and need some advice as to how to install all three optical drive units.
Of course I could simply replace the Liteon DVD ROM drive with the Sony, but then the Sony has no RPC-1 region free patch, and I really dont want the drive locked. So ideally, I want to use the Liteon DVD-ROM for reading and the Sony for DVD writing.
I could also replace the Liteon CDRW with the Sony DVD writer, but then the Sony can only write CD-R's at 24x, not like the trusty Liteon which burns beatifully at 52x.....
So, is there any optimal solution to have all three units installed ? I guess I need one of the units as a slave to my HDD, but this is likely to slow things down, right ?
