How to make my external dvd burner my primary

I have read that it helps speed to somehow configure youre computer to read the external dvd burner as your primary drive or sumtin. How do i do this using windows XP?

Also using the DVD Shrink with the biult in burner…is this burner better than using the NEro?




XP is only going to assign a drive letter to it-

The Master/Slave relationship is only used in the IDE hookups-

DVD Shrink and Nero Recode 2 are very similar - I belive that Shrink is a little more advanced than Recode IMHO-
