i have ordered a 2nd hard drive and should be arriving soon.

I wanted to ask a question about fitting it and attaching the cables.

currently my main hard disk is attached by a cable from the motherboard and this cable continues to my dvd rom drive. the second cable has a free connector on it while and is also connected to my cd writer.

I assume that when i get my hard drive i attach it to the free connector, but not sure about how to jumper it, should it be a secondary slave or is this wrong.

Thanks in advance

you can do that BUT I would advise keeping your dvd and cdrw on the same cable and then the two hard drives on the same

sorry forgot to say - dvd as secondary master and cdrw as secondary slave. Just put your new hd as primary slave !!!
