    Can I link up two dvd writer's in the same machine?

    I have an ABIT SA6R raid board,I want to hook up two dvd writers in the same machine,my hard drive's are on the raid controller so I have 2 spare ide port's,I already have a pioneer ao4 working perfectly,but want to add another,could I just put it onto the second ide port as a master and use both the writer's at the same time with the right software?

    If you like.
    Understeer is when you hit a wall with the front of your car
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of your car
    Horsepower is how fast your car hits the wall
    Torque is how far your car sends the wall across the field once you've hit it

    note since writing 2 dvd is processor intensive (talk to ABC about it ) recommend not to write both at once!

    You'll kill em both! Invest in a double cpu system


    BTW how you got 2 you wanna donate to the "Greek's desperate for a DVD writer foundation"?

    PimpMasterT,
    With all due respect, the above statement is crap!!!
    A properly configured system will be able to deliver the data required to 2 DVD-R drives recording at 2x without any problems at all.

    yeah pimp ffs i run 4 burners on my p3 866 all you need is to make sure the psu can handle the juice they all need, hes on about writing the same thing to both recorders, not like i was doing and burning different things at the same time (and i still managed that )

    ABCMan,
    When I said that a "properly configured system will be able to deliver the data quickly enough", I was actually referring to recording 2 different discs at once while running other (not too demanding) apps (ie, MP3 playback & web browsing).

    Default heeheh

    disjkuggler v4.01 pro is the solution, been using it on twin burners for years..just make sure each burner is on a seperate channel..the current 1 i use supports 2 burners dvd/cd

    the older version i have supports unlimited burners but no dvd..

    oh if u need a controller card get a maxtor ata 133 they are superb...old megabytes down in worcester park have em or any good maxtor stockist..

    oh and nero sucks....big time.....1x anyone..lol


    i was just making a personal backup....honest
