i just got myself a 48246s, and i have a bit of a n00b question.
I have it hooked up on the secondary ide channel as the slave, with a pioneer dvd 106s as the master. does the position on the cable matter? because the pioneer is at the end, and the writer is in the middle. the pioneer does not pause the system when discs are inserted. it’s on a via kt266a m/b (an Epox 8kha+), and in the control panel it says it’s running UDMA mode 2 (the dvd is on mode 4).
whenever i insert a new disc (any disc) into my writer, the whole system pauses while it accesses the disc (for about 2 or 3 secs) - is this normal? actually, it’s not pausing anymore now - i think it depends on whether you have that actual drive selected open in explorer, silly me
