    Hi, Before I install my New SATA DVD Drives, I currently have 2 IDE DVD Drives in use, Do I need to make any configurations in my BIOS since I'm changing from IDE/PATA to SATA. If there is please be specific.

    Should I configure BIOS before or after I install them?

    2 ASUS Quiet Track SATA DVD Drives on an ASUS M2N Deluxe 570SLI Mobo


    Thanks

    No, just plug them in and your good to go.
    Bios should automatically recognise the drives

    (y) thanks

    When I download the Firmware, Do I need to Download/Install it twice since I have two of the same DVD Drive, or just once?

    Why are you downloading firmware?
    You only need to do this if the firmware update address's a problem you have

    Got it installed, working good upon first boot up, first time I've installed something with no problems risk free, thanks guys for the help from my various threads regarding Pre Installation through Visualization. Saved me driving to another city that has the PC Shop without having to bring my 80 pound steel tower case, gas money, and installation costs.
