Connection help please

  alltime 20:54 29 Jul 2005

I have a dvd drive, cdrw, and one hard disk, Which two should be on the same cable, as master and slave, going to the primary connection on the mobo please?.

It is a matter of choice, i would put the dvd and hd on primary with the hd as the master and dvd as slave, and the cdrw as master on secondary.

CD writer as master, DVD slave, hard drive as master on its own cable.

concur with graham - much the best way

The layout by Graham ® is normally agreed to be best.

Optical and Magnetic drive interfaces are not identical in all cases, and can interfere with efficient operation.
