On opening up Nero Info Tool the details are as follows:
Primary IDE Channel : Master :Maxtor 4D080H4 , DMA on.
Secondary IDE Channel : Master : HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM GDR8160B, DMA on, Autorun on. Slave :NECDVDRWND-2500A, DMA on, Autorun on.
On opening Device Manager/Primary IDE Channel/Advanced Tab: Device 0: Device Type - Auto detection, Transfer Mode - DMA if available, Current Transfer Mode - Ultra DMA Mode 5. Device 1: Device Type - Auto Detection, Transfer Mode - DMA if available, Current Transfer Mode - not applicable.
The Secondary IDE Channel setings are as above.

Would changing NEC ND-2500A DVD writer form Slave on Secondary IDE Channel to Master on Secondary IDE Channel make a difference?
