I bought a new CDRW & received it last night, Liteon 48x12x48 IDE & was wondering where would be the best place to put it?
Previously I had the HD as Master on the Primary IDE and the CD-ROM on the Secondary IDE as Master & and an old SCSI Yamaha 6x4x16 CDRW connection to a SCSI card in the PCI slot (Which I’ve now taken out), so I’m swaping a SCSI CDRW for a IDE one.
Whats the best configuration for these 3 IDE devices? HD has to be the Master on the Primary IDE, so whats the best to do with the CD-ROM & CDRW? Have them both on the secondary IDE cable Master/Slave? or one as the slave on the primary?
Which would be best for CD writing in terms on speed etc? & Does anyone know how long it should take to copy a whole CD @ 48x on the fly? (CD>CDR)
Hope thats not too many questions
