Hi,I have a 30GB ATA-66 hard drive, I have bought a new 120GB ATA-100.Is it ok to mix ATA-66 and ATA-100 on the same IDE channel?I have a DVD rom drive and a cd writer in my mobo manual it says it is not a good idea to fit CD rom drives and Hard drives on the same IDE channel. ThanksSturmey
stuff like this depends on type of motherboardbut two hard drives on one ide channel should be OKOne will be slow though
What about mixing ATA-100 and ATA-66 on the same channel.
Thgere's no problem mixing different ATA speeds on the same channel - each will run at their respective rate.Note that to get above ATA33 rates, you must have an 80-wire IDE cable.
