Hi All,

this is in connection with an earlier thread.

click here

The Maxtor Maxblast3 program suggested says set both drives to 'cable select' if the slave drive is on the same cable as the master Boot drive.

I had originally thought that as long as you had one HD set as Master and the other as Slave that was all you needed to do/know.

So, can someone please entighten me as to what 'cable Select' actually does.

Please dont say it selects a cable....lol

Thanks again,
