Drives on separate IDE controllers

My system has 2 harddrives set up on the SATA controller and there are 2 DVD Burners on the Primary IDE controller, master/slave. The secondary IDE controller is redundant at the moment and I wondered if it would be more efficient to have each burner on a separate controller and would it make direct drive to drive copying smoother.

TIA

Yes.

Could they both then be set to "master"

Yes. But they would only be more efficient when they run together, such as when you were copying on the fly from one drive to another.
