Is it working now as set up?
If it is why change it?

They're fine as they are.

I have a dvd-rw as master and dvd-rom as slave, both on the secondary. They work fine. I would leave well alone.

I agree as above. CD or DVD rewriters always like to be the master. The way yours is set up is ideal (same as mine) so leave it as it is.
