IDE configuration help



Hey guys, i just bought a new NEC 3540A and i need to plug it in.

My current configuration is so:

Primary Master: HD
Primary Slave: LG CDRW.

Secondary Master: ASUS CDRW.
Secondary Slave: Empty.

How should i configure my new device?

should the HD and the DVDR be Masters and the others Slave?


The HD must be primary master.
I would add the NEC as either master or slave on the secondary channel. It really doesn’t matter whether it is master or slave as long as it’s on a different channel to the HD (from where you will burn things).
