    Default New Drive Setup shm-165h6s

    Lite-ON shm-165h6s04c arrived today from Newegg and I am curious on how I should set this drive. Master, Slave, CS. End of the ribbon cable, middle etc. My second drive is a TOSHIBA CD/DVDW SD-R5372.

    I have read that I should not put the Lite-On on the same cable as a hard drive where I pull and send my media files. Would that be a bad decision or more efficient? I have 2 Maxtor sata Drives (200 & 300gig). One for programs and the latter for storage.

    If the new drive I have is just for recoding meida, is there a preference or will it just be more of somones choice or opinion.

    Suggestions or advice would be welcome as you can tell i'm a "newbie".
    thanks

    I have my HDD's on my primary IDE channel and also on a PCI controller card. I have my DVD devices on the secondary IDE channel. My DVD Rom I rip from is master and my burner is slave. I don't have any problems burning up to 12X speed.

    thanks for the response. Another question if you dont mind. I know the toshiba is an old drive, but what would you use to burn or to rip with my current setup? Lite On or Toshiba. I hope to upgrade from the Toshiba soon.

    The Toshiba might have slow rip and burn times. If the Toshiba rips and burns fast enuff for ya than its ok.
    Fast burn and rip times have been gotten with the 6s series LiteOn drives. Depends on how fast ya wanna rip and burn.

    You could do a Quality Scan with CD\DVD Speed to check the quality of the burns from both. The quality is all related to burner\firmware\media burn speed combinations. Most of the newer burners burn better at higher speeds
