Re: Secondary slave drive - ATAPI incompatible
OS: Windows XP Home (SP3)
Haven't tried taking off the old DVD reader or putting the setup like you said (HD's primary, DVD Drives secondary).
The cables are in like they should (tight) because I've checked & double checked them.
What I did try allready (regarding the setup) is: switching the secondary master/slave settings (harddisk 2: slave, DVD writer master) but that didn't work also because then it didn't gave an error but it didn't load my secondary harddisk.
I'll try to put the HD's on primary and the DVD drives on secondary now, if it works or not I'll get back to this thread thanks for helping.
edit: now that I'm saying that, heh could it be that my IDE cable/ribbon is broken?
edit2: THANKS MindoverMaster!!!! It worked (HD's are now both on the primary IDE and DVD Drives on secondary IDE) I've tried a bunch of things before I did this and it's the only thing that worked, even better my second HD is now running in DMA 5 instead of 2 (DVD drives both DMA 2) again thanks!
