Thanks for stopping by ............................................... I just purchased a 2nd internal DVD burner so that I can create copies of non-copycode protected DVDs by recording directly from one drive to the other, thus avoiding the time-consuming interim step of creating an image file on my hard disk drive. My system has grown to include a number of IDE and ATAPI devices, which led me to install a Promise Ultra100TX2 controller card. Currently the card has one free port. My options are as follows: 1. Install the second burner as a slave device on the same channel as the other DVD burner, which is currently attached to the motherboard's secondary IDE controller, or 2. Install the second burner on the unused port on the Promise controller card. I'm interested in knowing which hookup should (at least theoretically) allow for faster and more reliable data transfer between the two burners. It is worthwhile to note that although Promise advertises that the controller card was primarily designed for enhanced IDE performance, the card is also supposed to be ATAPI compatible.
