Hello,

I have just checked the peripherals listed in my Pc's BIOS,and have a few questions please.
This is what the BIOS states...

IDE Channel 0 MASTER-DVD ROM
IDE Channel 0 SLAVE-NONE

X IDE Channel 1 MASTER-NONE
X IDE Channel 1 SLAVE-NONE

IDE Channel 2 MASTER-HD
IDE Channel 2 SLAVE-NONE

IDE Channel 3 MASTER-DVDRW
IDE Channel 3 SLAVE-NONE

I have two HD's fitted both SATA.The DVDRW is SATA.The only IDE devices fitted are the DVD ROM and the Floppy/Card Reader.

So how come the devices are listed as IDE and not SATA.I thought with SATA devices there was no master and salve?.

Very confused.Cheers
