I recently bought a new pc. I've chosen an Asus P5GD1 MB and a CD/DVD burner from Aopen (E-IDE).
My HDD is connected via S-ATA (and is set to master); my burner was connected to the primary IDE (and is set to master). In that configuration, I was able to read cds and burn data cds. Burning audio cds however seemed impossible ... Now I've switched the burner to the secondary IDE and burning works fine now (both data and audio).
However the booting process is now very very slow
I suppose connection to the secondary IDE isn't the "normal" thing to do ?? Why can't I connect the burner to the primary IDE or what can I do to solve the slow booting problem ?
The boot sequence = first floppy, than HDD. In my opnion the problem isn't this sequence, because the pc keeps hanging just after I turned him on (I see the screen : prim. IDE : not detected ... sec. IDE : Aopen DUW).
Thanks in advance
