i have this question which some had asked before...but i'm still confuse
i bought a new H/D and want to connect it to the PC so i get 2 H/D...
so i have an old IBM 40 GB H/D
a new Western Digital ATA100 200GB
so now i have them set out as
Master - 40GB H/D connected to middle slot of IDE cable
Slave - DVD drive connected to the end of IDE cable
Master - WD 200GB connected to middle slot of IDE cable
Slave - DVD RW connected to the end of IDE cable
and both set to DMA....
is this right.....as the second h/d becomes slow....
what should i do....
should i switch back to
HDs on Primary
and DVD on Secondary
and fix the IDE cables to this description
The connector farthest from the motherboard should be connected to the master device and the middle connector should be connected to the slave
