Default new dvd burner

so im getting a dvd burner to accompany my cd burner. Its SATA instead of IDE. When im setting it up, do i still need to switch my cd burner to slave? or keep it master? My new SATA drive will be the master. I dont know much about this stuff for SATA drives. Im also disappointed because i ordered last night, and im not getting it until monday, thats almost one week. but oh well, ill live.

Default Re: new dvd burner

You can leave the CD how it is its IDE so it wont affect the new SATA DVD
