    My opinion is to avoid the jmicron controller whenever possible.
    other people have mentioned that even if you use it dont put the CD/DVD on it.

    there can be minor advantages to using a seperate contoller for from-to data transfers, but that thing causes many problems, even problems when nothing is on it but its drivers are installed.

    This ^^

    Plus you can then disable the other controller and decrease your boot time.
