I’m preparing to replace my current DVD-RW drive with Pioneer 215 or Samsung 203x (Pioneer preferred I think). I’ve found some unverified claims about possible problems with optical drives connected to SATA interface AND hdd’s connected to PATA. Is it true? Can I expect some weird beavior with following configuration:
Gigabyte K8NF-9 board (nForce 4),
IBM/Hitachi HDD connected to classic IDE interface,
Planned SATA optical drive mentioned earlier?
Currently I’m not using SATA at all.
Thanks in advance.
