having built several windows based pcs, and not really paid that much attention to the use of ide cables (lol, they just connect things together ) i have a quick question, relating to something i heard the other day...
... if i have two devices, e.g. two ide hard drives, which part of the ide cable, 1 or 2 do i connect the primary master to (assuming, the two drives are pri-mas and pri-sla) - i heard that you connect the pri-mas to no2, is this true? and does it make a difference?
also, is connecting one hdd and one optical drive to the same cable a bad idea? any reasons for/against this?
