have i done something wrong?
is it safe to have 2 dvd writers on one pc?
I have two writers on my machines and have not noticed any problems. What OS are you using and are you using cable select or jumpering the drives as master/slave?

Try removing the IDE controllers in device manager and reboot.

Yes it's safe. Windows will re-install ide drivers on reboot.
shall i delete all 3 then?
Yes, but it's only necessary to delete the primary and secondary IDE controllers.
No problem. You're welcome.Be sure to go back into device manager and set DMA on.And Enable CD Digital Audio.
