Connect 2 IDE drives and 2 DVDs
Posted on 2005-03-09
I built out a file server for some mechanics who monthly load large dvd files into their system. I put in 2 hard drives and two dvd/roms. I put the system disk on IDE 1 as a master and another drive as the slave on the same channel. On IDE 2 Iput both dvd/roms one as the mast and one as the slave. It seems to take quite a long time to read the dvds. Is there a better configuration? should I install a PCI IDE controller and put one of the hard drives on it? How can I speed this system up?
