sata/ ide connections

  emmos 12:44 28 Apr 2006

I have just built a new pc using a sata drive and a dvd/cd drive which is connected to the ide secondary which both work fine, I want to fit an IDE h/d and a second dvd/cd drive, can I connect them to the primary ide and if so which do I put as master and slave the h/d or the dvd/cd drive. Dave

From experience I have always had to put hard drives and CD-ROMs on separate IDE channels.

If I were to attempt this I would jumper the HDD as Master and the DVD-ROM as slave. If they arn't found on startup then just jiggle the jumpers around until something works.

Yes, you can do that. I would put the HDD as master and the optical drive as slave.
