Hey you guys, I got a little problem. I've been toying around and older system I have, trying to install another HDD, etc. One thing I couldn't get to work is for it to recognize and two drives on one IDE cable... tried between 2 hard drives and 2 CD-ROM drives.
I have 2 cables coming off of the MB, each with 2 slots. However, when I connect any 2 drives to the same cable, neither device is recognized by the system.
Another quick question: there are 2 cables off of the MB, and under the BIOS the devices connected to these are considered Primary 1, Primary 2, Secondary 1 and Secondary 2, depending on which cable the device is on (one is primary and one is secondary), and how many are connected to each cable (the 1 & 2)... the question is, does it matter which cable to connect the drives, and which slot on the cable?
Thanks for any help you can give me on this.
