Primary or Secondry IDE for CD drive?

  gplatt2000 18:28 28 Apr 2003

Please read my post 'Installing New Hardrive - cables' to find out my setup. I have now bought a new ATA cable for my two hard drives and now all I need to know is, because the CD drive will be on its own cable, should this go into the primary IDE on the mobo with the hard drves in the Secondy IDE or vice-versa? Thanks a lot in advance, hopefully this will be my last post on installing my hard drive (after about five others!) Thanks once more, Gavin.

It should go on the secondary IDE channel, gplatt2000, keep your Operating System's drive as Primary Master.

OK, thanks a lot MAJ for your help in just about every post I have posted. Much apreciated. Hopefully I'll now be able to eventually get on with it! Thanks again, Gavin.
