…haven’t been able to find a definitive answer-- so here goes–
just purchased a Plextor-708A- DVD writer-
already had Liteon 40125-S CDRW and Toshiba SD-M1612 DVD-Rom drives in place.
As a quick setup/test- i replaced the Toshiba w/ the Plextor. DMA enabled/ Cable Select- on the same ide cable.
Now the questions-
should I configure these different? (ie- replace the Liteon instead of the Toshiba- or add an IDE channel card and run all three)?
are there any obvious configuration points that i need to look at? (already have DMA enabled/ current firmwares, etc.)
what kind of cd copy speeds should I expect? (i noticed that the old Toshiba/ Liteon configuration would back up a cd in 5 minutes or so- new combination was around 10 mins. does this sound right?)
guess i’m trying to optimize my settings- not really having an opinion yet on what works best. so, any input is greatly appreciated.
btw- great forum- i have been a longtime lurker-- and have gotten a lot of great advice from reading in the past.
