    Well your hard drive should be the master of the primary IDE channel, ya burner the master of the secondary channel and ya DVD the slave on the secondary (well that the optimum setup anyway). Ya friends hard drive just set as a slave on the primary channel. ;)

    Well it would actually slow ya hard drive's performance down but I take it that ya DVD is the master of the secondary IDE then and if ya don't want to change anything just add the other hard drive as the slave on the secondary IDE as ya won't have it in there long so the performance hit won't bother ya. :smokin:

    Hi!
    Change it to Wiggo’s optimum setup… your going to be in there anyway!
    That way you know you’re running at full speed.
    Wiggo’s advice also applies to your friend’s HD… if it’s slower, yours will run just as slow.
