    How do I determine which device number my CD-RW drive is on my IDE ATA/ATAPI controller? How do I determine whether or not it's on the primary or secondary IDE channel?

    Thanks.

    In your device manager select properties for the drive. If it's the master it will have a "location" of (0). Slave 1 will have a location of (1).

    You could also look at the jumper settings on the drive.
