Re: Problem with HDD and CDD on same IDE cable
I had the same problem before. Just try swapping connectors, like try putting the connector that is in the hdd to the cd drive. Mine has 3 different connectors and are colored different. Blue connector is for the System, Gray connector for Slave, and Black connector for Master.
Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
