Sata and IDE CD burners

Hello all, i am about to purchase a new SATA CD/DVD drive, i currently have a older model IDE CD/DVD drive installed on my new build, i would like to have both drives installed, will there be an issue with both drives installed, what about disk copying? will i be able to copy one disk from the IDE to the SATA drive?, are there anything i should be aware of?.
Thanks in advance
