NEC 3500A set as MASTER drive

#1

I’ve installed and tested this drive in the master and slave positions. The drive is always detected by WXP Pro and running in DMA mode 2. I see no performance advantage in putting this drive to the MASTER position.

Perhaps others can provide their own experiences with the master/slave configuration.


#2

it SHOULDN’T make any difference where you have a drive connected.

i’ve had my 3500 and many other devices in arbitrary configurations and it’s never made the slightest bit of difference

(except to drive letters of course) :slight_smile:


#3

No difference. You can change the driver letter as you wish.


#4

Okay…just checking. A lot of folks are pounding the table about MASTER mode.


#5

Yo-

Have always set my reader/ripper as “Master” and my burner as “Slave” without any problems-

In a properly configured system it makes no difference, and it shouldn’t. Pounding the table is generally a result of the chosen settings compensating for other problems in the system… :wink:
