I'm getting a new hard drive tomorrow and it will be used for storage. My current configuration is
Hard Drive channel 1
DVD-RW Channel 2
and I have cable select IDE cables
I would like to put my primary drive & the CD-RW on channel 1 and the new drive and the DVD-RW on the second channel but where the slave connection would be it's only about two inches away from the master connection and won't reach the DVD-RW and the same with the other cable.
My question is, should I go buy regular master/slave cables? Is there a advantage over cable select? And even though the second drive is for storage, should it be on the second channel?
