Yes, they're both on the same channel.

Maybe you should put both disks as master on each channel, and both CD
as slaves on each channels ?
I've something got problems under heavy load with 2 disks on the same
channel. It seems to be hardware-dependant. I've got a setup which worked
fine for month with 2 drives per channel, and gave me a lot of troubles
when I changed the slave drives for larger ones. The only solution I found
was to add a add-on pciide adapter and run each drive as master.
