shadow1100mfp Posted August 19, 2007 Share Posted August 19, 2007 on one computer i own, everything but the harddrive was replaced due to the spacer on the m/b melting and shorting the whole system. the guy that did the work though, did it in a weird way. first, there are 3 ata (i think thats what theya re called) ports on the new m/b itself. right now, one is going to the hard drive, one is going to a floppy drive, one is going to a dvd burner, single drive. the one going to the dvd drive has a master/slave set up to it, and since i was wanting to add a second hard drive (well, 4, but for now 2) to the computer, i was wondering how i would set it up; as of now, i think i would put the master part onto the main hard drive and the slave on to a second hard drive, and then use the cable that was originally connecting the hard drive to the m/b to connect the dvd drive. or would this be wrong? another way i thought of hooking them up was to take the original hd and put the master on that, and the slave on the dvd drive, while using the single cable to hook up a second hard drive. i'd love any help at all, so thanks. and just a side question that i thought of while typing this up: is it possible to use a flash memory card as ram? i have several cards of various capacities, and it would make for a good project if i could somehow do it Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
