Ide Cable

June 25th, 2013

Can you connect a DVD RW to the same IDE cable as the Master HD?

I have a HP Presario a1412n desktop PC. It has 4 SATA connectors and 1 IDE connector on the MOBO. The DVD RW was originally connected to the IDE port and the HD was connected to one of the SATA ports. My homes electricity went on and off several times and now I can't access my HD connected to the SATA port or boot up the PC even in Safe mode. Ive tried a different HD with similar results. I then disconnected the DVD RW from the IDE port and connected an HD to it, the PC now boots. The issue now is that I have no place to connect my DVDRW to. I have two connectors on the IDE cable, can the DVD RW be connected to the second connector of the cable the HD is connected to?

Yes, but you have to set it up as slave first, there should be a jumper in back next to the cable port, usually the center set of pins is slave, but it should be marked on the drive itself the exact location!
