Ide Channels

Recommended Posts

If I wanna run two optical drives and two harddrives should I set it up so that the hard drives are both master devices, and both optical drives are slaves (or vice versa), or should I set it up so that both harddrives are one channel and both optical drives are on the second channel. Does it even make a difference?

 

The new comp will be a DAW for audio recording so harddrive access is more important than optical drive access.

 

The stuff is still in the mail but I'll be using,

 

western digital 120 w/ 8mb cahce

western digital 80 w/ 8mb cache

Lite-on DVD drive

Sony DVD burner

 

Thanks,

Eric

Put your 120 (system drive) + less usable optical device to first chanell and 80 (store drive) + more often usable optical device to second chanell.

 

In one moment IDE chanell can be used only by one device. So that why I always put CD on second ch.

 

Think by yourself, but I think my fist paragraph is more effective. B)

well if only one device can be accessed at once than having two harddrives on the same channel would defeat the purpose of having a seperate audio harddrive!

 

Thanks A lot, I didnt know that
