It does make sense to put the two drives on different IDEs (IDE 0 for primary drive, IDE 1 for editing drive) and have both as master drives, not slaves, no matter what video cards you’re using. I don’t remember the technical reasons but it has to do with the way the system handles calls to the drive, etc.
I use a setup that’s recommended by Pinnacle and it’s like this:
IDE0: Master – System HDD, Slave – Editing HDD;
IDE1: Master – DVDRW, Slave – CD-RW
Even some computer technicians told me that it makes no sense, but I can’t argue with Pinnacle now, right?
