like it was said before, IDE is only as fast as it's weakest component, therefore if you put a cd rom on the same cable as your HDD it will slow it down. but if you put both HDD's on one cable and the DVD and CDR on another cable, it will keep the HD faster, but may slow down the DVD a bit. personally, i have my removable storage on one, and HDD on the other and have no problems copying disk to disk. in any situation if both HDD are on one cable you will not notice any speed changes. however if you put them with a new DVD burner, the DVD burner may or may not be as fast, anyway i'm starting to repeat myself, you get the point.
