This took me hours and hours of testing in order to understand what was going wrong, so here we go:
Nforce 2 chipeset (Asus A7N8X)
Master: HDD IBM DTLA-307030 (Ultra DMA 5)
Master: Teac CDRW CD-W522E (52x24x52x , just bought it)
Slave: Toshiba DVD ROM 16x48x
Now take a look of my burners write transfer rate tested with nero cd speed
-----the first pic at the link-------
Is this normal? I don't think so. So I started making hundreds and hundreds of test until I did this:
Master : CD-RW (alone)
Now my write transfer test looks like this:

Strange?? Well and now take a look what happens when I completely remove my toshiba DVD-ROM and have
Channel 0:HDD alone
Channel 1:CD-RW alone
---------the third pic at the link--------------
wtf is going on?????
Is this a hardware or software or what issue?
Some rumours on the internet are talking about buggish Nvidia Ide drivers. Maybe that is the problem.
Also my Toshiba has a patched firmware so it can rip faster, could this cause the problem?
Anyone out there that has the same hardware and same problems?
Thanks in advance.
