hard drive help??
i just got a old Dell Dimension 4700. i took the hard drive out of my dimension 3000 to put in the 4700. well i opened the case up and found that the it only had one ide port and 3 sata ports and the only ide port was being used with the cd rom. i took the 40 wire cable out and replaced it with the 80 wire cable and tried hooking my cd-rom and the hard drive up on the same 80 wire cable. the computer came up with that it didn't have any hard drives connected. and the cd-rom wouldn't work either. but i have to have the cd-rom work and the hard drive so i can install a fresh copy of windows on it. HELP!!!
