I've already gotten tired of swapping cables between my extra HD and CD-burner. It take too long to keep tranferring files that I want from drive to drive just to put them on a disk. The stupid fucking computer isn't able to read both a CDR-drive and a HD on a single 3 way IDE cable. I already tried putting the HD's on the same IDE cable and can never get it to boot, if I get it to, the extra drive isn't recognized. In the BIOS setup, it will only recognize 1 item of hardware per IDE cable. Even if two are connected it only sees the one closet to the MB. So my question.. How do I make the computer recognize 2 HD's and the CDR Drive with only 2 IDE connection. And a 3 way cable won't work? I also don't understand why it won't work. But this isn't really my most knowledgable field either.
