I've recently been given an old but working CD-RW drive. My PC (500MHz Pentium 2, Win 98) is set up as: C Drive, Primary Master. Existing CD drive (D), Secondary Master. Nothing currently connected to either cable as slave. Any advice on the best way to add the CD-RW drive, also which drive would be best to connect the existing audio cable to? Thanks.
i would be inclined to go the other way, connect the cdrw as secondary slave so that it is not on the same ribbon as the hard drive, there is logic in what davidg says but with a slower old system it would be better to copy a cd to the hard drive first then on to the cdrw from there. also you are more likely to be writing from the hard drive to the cdrw anyway.
as to the audio cable you'd just as well leave it where it is (i think we're all agreed on that at least). H
