/treads nervously into Hardwareworld...
To cut to the chase, my current setup is:
Master - HDD (40 GB)
Slave - DVD-ROM
Master - CD Writer
Slave - none
I am soon to be getting a DVD writer and a second HDD (200 GB) which is faster than my old HDD, so I will be using that as my primary drive with Windows on it. My question is firstly which drive should I get rid of, the CD writer or the DVD ROM? I won't really need either anymore, but I'll probably keep one, not least because I have no blanking plates.
Secondly, how should I set it up? At the moment I'm thinking:
Master - HDD (200 GB)
Slave - old CD Writer
Master - DVD Writer
Slave - old HDD (40 GB)
Does this seem suitable? Sorry for the long-winded question, I hope I'm making sense as I'm kind of a newbie to the insides of my PC.
