Fist off, Hello from a newbie. I have been reading here quite a lot, and My head is still spinning LOL. I have already learned a lot. Thanks
I have a new Dell XPS that I just bought. It has a Sony CRX217e CD RW and a Philips(benq) DVD8801 DL RW. The Sony is in the top slot and is the “primary” drive.
My question is this:
I keep reading about Master and Slave settings, but on my Dell, both Drives are set to CSL. When I look up the drives Specs on the Dell website, it says Dell systems use the CSL setting. If I replace the CD RW with another DVD ROM or RW, do I have to set it to CSL, or can it be changed to Slave and master. Also what is the advantage to changing the settings if it is allowed?
My apologies if this is in the wrong forum
Thanks in advance
