Got it hooked up with the hard drive and the reader on channel 1 and the writer on channel 2 (eventually to be joined by another hard drive) now, and that seems to have fixed it. It burns audio and data on-the-fly at an average speed of about 12x, so it takes less than 15 minutes to burn a full CD on-the-fly, faster than making an image first.

Thanks for your help everyone

ide's been around since the 80's. it just means the drive controller is
embedded in the drive. when it first came out, you could only put hard
drives on them, and there was only one channel. the first cdrom drives
had their own controller with them, or were scsi. same for tape drives.
ide was just something cheap. then came enhanced ide with the last
486's and first pentium's, where there were 2 channels, and it was possible
to put other types of devices on the channel.
then the standard ide cdrom was invented that would work on the
same cable with hard drives.
you can still get a $20 controller where you can put 4 more things on
your machine, or more controlleres if you want.
the worst things to deal with in computers were vesa local bus slots.
you wouldn't believe the force you had to use to insert those stupid

That's pretty much what I figured, its development was mostly an effort make something cheap. SCSI is a much better system in my mind, it's a shame you can hardly find SCSI devices these days. Instead of buying a second IDE controller, I'll just buy a firewire card at some point, firewire is a far superior technology in every way (faster and more flexible).
