My CDRW shows up in the BIOS as DMA2... however my DVDRW shows up as ATA 33. So I am going to assume that the DVDRW should be the Master and the CDRW the slave..


BTW: I am not going get sued for saying Slave? :eek:

Just set the jumpers on the drives to "CS" (cable select) and let the BIOS do the work, I've found that to be convenient :) as for the physical organization, I assume you meant that the DVDRW was ATA/ 133, in which case, I'd say yeah, slap that badboy at the top of the cable

The DVDRW should probably be ATA33. And the CDRW is suppossed to be DMA2. Soundds right. And it also should matter where on the cable they are unless a specific manufacturer recommends placement

with the way things work today, on newer computers, it doesnt really matter where you put the drive on the bus cable. just leave em, they should work fine.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
