The bios see both. The reader is an ATA drive and the writer is a SATA drive.
I guess there is not much hope with 7.0 about the ATA drive since the controller chip is not supposed to be supported (Asus P5Q MB).
Windows see an use both drives so there is no connection issues.

Already tried. Didnt like it too much but good project.

Edit : just retried a detection with cdrecord and it works. Kinda strange since I did nothing since I kldload atapicam and it detected nothing just after ...
