  logix 14:23 14 Jan 2004

i have 2 hard disks 1 dvd-rom 1 cdrw drive.
can someone tell me the recommended setup for these devices.
at present i have 2 hard disks c:& d: on the primary channel,& the dvd-rom on the secondary channel as master,& cdrw as slave on the secondary channel.
is this the most efficient setup for running these devices ?

Quite a few people say that the CD-RW or DVD-RW should be set to the Master & the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM should be Secondary instead. Something to do with the Rewriter drives will uses its maximum performance etc. I'm not quite sure about this so I hope someone else can point that out.
