Ive been video editing for a year on a machine with only an 80gig hard drive and burning to SVCD and struggling lately for space and intend to upgrade. Having taken a look at the forum posts I cant seem to find any mention of System configuration for Digital Video. My system: Running win98se, 80gig 7200 Hd, 512ddr, xp2000, CD burner, DVD reader. Intended upgrade: Second 80gig hd, DVD burner and Win XP oem, on a dual boot system, I would like to retain my CD burner for the copy option. My question is: What would be the best way to configure the cabling of the four units, ie master/slave/ide channel, DVD and CD burner, to get the optimum performance. Also Im not sure about what would go where regarding os systems and programmes (re: partitioning of C and D drive), and would keep new hd for picture and video storage. Any help regarding this update would be appreciated.
