Wonder if anyone can advise me what the best configuration of H/drive, Dvd player/Dvd writer/and Cd writer would be, which should be connected as slave/master and to which IDE port 1 or 2 would give best results

Primary IDE:

hdd - master

cd writer - slave

Secondary IDE:

dvd-writer master

dvd rom - slave


Nowadays it is not so vital; others will have other preferences.

I just thought it might be better to have both the writers on their own channel. Chances are, both will not be used at the same time.
The dvd rom may slow the hard drive down if on the same channel, it depends on how old these units are.
Doesnt the dvd writer read dvds? why have a seperate dvd-roM?

IDE 1 Hard drive
IDE 2 Master cd rewriter slave dvd writer/reader
