First my setup:
3 ghz 800 fsb
1 gig memory ddr2-sdram
2 Sata Maxtor H Drives - 1 160 and 1 200 gig
External Nec 3500a ran through USB2 from external box
NEc 3540 a ran as master on primary
HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM gdr8163b slave
Well before I bought the internal 3540a, I had fast ripping with the HL and the 3500a.
Now that I installed the 3540a inside the puter, changed the 3540 to master to fix the moving buffer issues, set the HL to slave I have very slow dvd ripping on all drives when I am ripping from the HL.
If I rip a dvd from the 2 burners at the same time, it rips fast.
Is there a way to run both the internal rom and 3540 as masters?
Perhaps I can hook the dvdrom HL up as a secondary drive, but I think my h drives could use this, even if they are on SATA?
Thanks for any help, and let me know if you need any more information.
Also, looking at the device manager I see 2 Primary IDE Channels listed, both named Primary IDE channel; there is no Secondary listed?
