    Hey

    Just wondering if it will make a difference whether I have my DVDR drive on the primary or secondary IDE?

    I currently have it and my CDRW drives on the secodary and two hard drives on the primary, but can easily switch them around if it will give me better performance?

    Thanks a lot

    Keep the DVD Drive on the secondary IDE as Master w/ the CDRW as Slave.

    Alright, thats the way it is currently configured if I am not mistaken, what difference would it make whether it was master or slave on the same channel?
