[QUOTE=Dialysis1;2059676]You need to look at the cable. The link below explains the differences and shows you what it looks like.
alrit heres what i saw and did:
I’v got one of those 80 cables (blue,grey & black connector) & one cable which has all black connector’s, I’m guessing that’s a 40 cable.
Anyways there were some problems I came across when i went with the orignal plan of setting master on both my DVD-RW & HDD and connecting the HDD (via 40 cable) to the Primary IDE & connecting the DVD-RW (via 80 cable) to the Secondary IDE. For some reason my computer wouldn’t boot up that way…some error about connecting the right removable boot device in DOS.
So tried connecting the HDD to the primary ide via the 80 cable this time but it still wouldn’t boot
So currently this is how its setup
[B]PRIMARY IDE>80 IDE Cable > DVD-RW
SECONDARY IDE > 40 IDE Cable > HDD[/B]
should i go ahead with the nero thing or is there anyway of setting the HDD to the Primary IDE ?
