Lite-On LTD-166S DVD-Rom

According to the recommendations, it says to connect the DVD-Rom to the secondary IDE port as a master.

I have connected my drive on my promise card as a master.

Will this affect the performance of the drive?

it shouldn’t, but u can try running nero cd speed to test it out.

whenever I connected a cdrom to the Promise ATA 100 controller on an A7V board, I would have lots of problems … I have read in other threads people were having similar problems (not with a7v boards but promise controllers in general). apparently some Promise controllers are not reccomended for use with ATAPI devices
