    lately my newest dvdrw, which i put jumper settings as slave, has been giving me problems. when reading data discs containing music, the tracks skip, which it normally NEVER does. i was just wondering if this is a common problem when putting one drive as slave, and one as master. the master drive is a dvdrom which has also been giving me problems lately, which i'll be replacing in a few days due to a faulty door. i was considering switching the position of the drives when i replace the dvdrom.

    For some DVD r/w's they work best when installed as master. Infact My Liteon and my Aopen both came with that recommendation and that is the way they both work. It is also possible with the track skipping that it is the media instead of the drive.
