Hello all, just registered so hope you guys and girls can help me. I bought a new dell and have the 80 wire IDE cable, have the standard burner connected to the end of the cable and I have added the philips pbdv1628b to the second place on the IDE cable. However all is not well, the philips drive is reading and writing at an incredibly slow rate and I heard somewhere that I need to set this drive as a slave for it to obtain its full speed. Is this correct, or is it rubbish, I dont know so if it is then could someone tell me the jumper settings as I have searched google and nothing came up, even the philips support pages don’t have anything…!
Many Thanks in advance
