This computer has always had problems detecting hardware on its 2nd ide chain, especially with an 80 conductor cable. And the jumper settings are correct, ive tried all sorts of combinations and really my 1st ide chain only seems to work when i need it to.
I have an old 10gb with windows and i need my DVDRW with an 80 conductor cable for it to work properly and then i need a secondary hdd to burn my stuff off. Ive gotten 4 hdds working at once but the 2nd chain was using an older non 80 cable. Ill try using the 10gb in the 2nd chain with an 80 cable and changing boot priority cuz the dvdrw and secondary hdd should both work on 1st chain with 80 cable.
Im sorry if im not giving much detail but ive really tried pretty much everything the normal person would do, jumper, position on the chain, chain, different cables. and im having mixed results but never the one i want.
