    2 DVD Writers and 1 DVD Rom
    I have a Pent 4 with 512 ram, 60 gig HD. I would like to hookup my 2 DVD
    Burners so that I can make 2 copies at the same time from my DVD Rom.. Is this possible and what do I need to connect them?

    Appreciate any help folk...

    Oops, thanks folks, I discovered that this task can be performed using
    My software burning program.

    It depends on how many ide devices you already have hooked up.

    Your hard drive should be on IDE 1 as the master, then maybe another CD rom or burner as the slave on IDE 1.

    You would need an IDE cable and plug into IDE 2 on your motherboard, consult your MOBO instruction manual if you can't find IDE 2.

    Plug it in and set 1 Burner to master and 1 to slave.

    Then plug the cable from IDE 2 on the MOBO into each burner, one end of cable into mobo, the other end into the master burner, and the middle part of the cable into the slave burner.

    Most new Burners, tell you right on the hardware itself which pins are master and slave or just consult your Burner instruction booklets.

    THen your ready to go.
