Question about IDE - PATA
Most motherboards now come with a ton of SATA connections, but only one PATA.
If a motherboard has only one IDE-PATA connecter, can that be split into a master and slave on the IDE cable?
What I mean is, I have a IDE Hard Drive, and a IDE CD ROM, can I run both of them on a motherboard that only has one PATA port?
