I’m using an Abit IC7, both SATA ports are used in a Raid 0 array.
IDE 1 is my Lite-On 48161
IDE 2 is to a WD 200JB
So my NEC3500 will have to share an IDE cable, but with which device ?
I’ve always avoided sharing IDE cables in the past, so it’s the first time I’ve had to.
I would like to be able to read a DVD in the Lite-On and back it up on the NEC, so I’m leaning toward sharing with the HD rather than 1st optical, any potential issues ?
I would try various methods myself, but since the cabling is hidden inside my case, and most options involve buying specific length IDE cables, I want to avoid any currently known issues.
So, share with the HD or other optical ? Which is slave/master, and which is on the end of the IDE cable, and which is on the second connector ?
