SATA so which IDE channel for DVD

  xania 18:06 26 Jan 2006

I'm building my first PC with SATA - ditching my old IDE HHDs along the way. Question is, should i still use IDE2 for the DVD writer or should I now use IDE1.

It doesn't matter which IDE channel use for your DVD.

I have a SATA based pc and my two DVD drives are master and slave on channel 0.....which is the normal channel you would put the system IDE drive on.

That's what I thought - thanks
