Thanks for the advice. How do I make sure master and slave set differntly. Have tried to connect two hard drives to IDE1, but it only recognises the larger HDD? I only recognises the smaller HDD if I have it connected to the IDE port alone. Assuming the help I get with this problem solves this issue. If I wanted to connect a third HDD, it would have to be on IDE2 along with the DVD-ROM. Is this allowed and how do I make sure the configuration is correct? Apologies if these seem simple questions, but i'm just a novice at this.
There are jumpers on the back of each drive - if you're lucky the pairs for master and slave will be printed on the drive itself - failingthat go to the manufacturers website for jumper settings. They MUST be right for this to work - master on the end of IDE 1 and slave on the intermediate connector is preferred.
