DVD drive, CD writer & DVD writer

  [DELETED] 19:39 07 Sep 2003

I've currently got a DVD drive and CD writer. I'm now thinking about adding a DVD writer, but don't want to get rid of the CD writer as the DVD writer does not write CDRs as quick.

Is there any problems with doing this?


LG DVD Drive
LD CD Writer
& poss Pioneer 106 DVD writer.

Does it matter which is on primary/secondary and master/slave?

Liteons DVD+RW drive writes CD-R at 40x and CD-RW at 24x.

I have my DVD burner as slave to my CD burner which is the master on IDE2

I put my DVD writer as the slave but it doesn't really matter which way round you put them.I picked master for my CD-Writer as i tend to use it more.

I'm looking at the pioneer as it does both DVD- and +.
