Would there be any issue with a HD on the same IDE line as a dvd/cd drive?
My main drive is SATA, i have plenty of sata connections, but the drive is just ide, so it should be ok?
I only meant to look on NewEgg to see if those IDE to SATA specifically say they work with DVD drives, as you asked, and to caution you that some might while other's might not so that you didn't end up getting one that didn't by accident if you happened to buy one later on.
ok gotcha! I got confused...I'm just going to order a sata dvdrw to make my project work smoother! Thanks for ur advice and welcome to the forum.
You may want to double check in your BIOS that both your hard drive and your DVD-RW are set to DMA mode 5.
