I wanna know is it harmful for IDE drives (HDD/DVDRW/CDRW) to be connected with IDE cable while power cable is disconnected?
Primary Master: HDD
Primary Slave: HDD
Secondary Master: DVDRW
Secondary Slave: Combo DVD/CDRW
Suppose the power cable has been removed from Primary Slave & Secondary Slave drives while the IDE cable is kept connected.
And the PC is powered up and used as normal for long period.( probably24/7)
Thanks in adavnce!
