    Default Which is faster?

    I would appreciate any info you guys could give me. I have talked to a few different people but they all give different answers. I have a DVD read only drive and a DVD writer drive. I have noticed that when I am reading a DVD while copying a DVD I get half the performance of using one at a time. They are on IDE and I have my hard drives on SATA. Is it faster to have them both on the same channel and one as a slave, or would it be better performance if I made them each a master on their own IDE cable (I have the two since I use SATA drives). Again, any input is greatly appreciated.
    Current Set-up: Thermaltake Tsunami case, Thermaltake 480 W silent purepower, MSI K8N Neo2 Plat., AMD Athlon 64 3500+ w/Venus 12 cooler, 2x512 DDR400, ATI AIW 9800 Pro w/Kingwin VGA cooler (it looks cool anyway), Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZX Gamer, 2x160 GB SATA RAID 0 HDD.

    Having both as the master of each channel as while any 2 devices are connected to the same IDE channel each device has to take turns at using that channel as the IDE channel can only support 1 device accessing it at a time.
