Its very easy just make sure you set your second drive as a slave (can be changed at the back of the drive) and plug & play will do the rest.

yeah, this little friend of ours is called a 'jumper'.. it is white and looks like a half-tooth... heh.. explanations on where to put is to be slave are on the back of it (each one and its way).

azury: thanks for your reply. just 1 question: which cd drive is slave, or does it matter?

It doesn't matter to much as long as one is set to master and the other is set to slave.

I would suggest making the one you use less the slave.

Cheers

I don't think it should bother you... look at the first one, and make the secondary one the opposite.. that's all
