Should I do a copy with Nero?

  1. I was trying to copy a cd with Nero today and I got the following message "Both drives are connected to the same IDE busses and it recommends different ones".

    I clicked burn anyway, is this going to affect anything?
    What does it mean and is it harmless?

    It means both of your CD drives are on the same IDE cable/controller/slot on the motherboard, I'm guessing. Not much else it could mean... And why it reccommends different ones? Who knows... I burn all the time with my CD drives on the same one, my hard drive on the other.

    They just recommend placing them on different IDEs to keep buffer underruns from happening. Since most burners nowaday have "burn proof" technology, no need in worrying about it.
