    What size in Gigabytes is the primary Harddrive?

    Did you try it on the secondary IDE?

    tried it on both...my hard drive is 80GB...seems to be working now though, have written a cd, now guna try a dvd...i had put it on the master and had a standard dvd rom on the secondary...can you not have to forms of dvd drive connected...even though one is only a player, the other being a writer???

    what are usual movie files to write on a dvd??? i have failed in my attempts to write an MP4 and an MPEG, i want to convert them to a dvd file ( what are these )

    where can i get a free video convertor???

    thank you please

    Yes you can but some drives have a difficult time shareing the same ribbon. This problem seems to be more evident when you have a very large drive like a 160G connected with a smaller, perhaps 20 or 40G drive or also putting a CDROM as a slave to a very large drive. Usually 2 CDROMs on the same ribbon will work but will cause problems if you try to copy a CD from the reader directly to the burner.

    I hope that made a little sense.
