Advice on fitting a second HD

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Grytpype-Thynne, Mar 5, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    I have had a PC for 3 years and have decided to fit a second HD, in the
    machine at the moment is a 40g HD, a DVD/CD drive and a CD writer. When I
    looked inside the machine this evening I noticed that the HD and the
    DVD/CD drive were on the first lead (IDE1) and the writer was on the
    second lead (IDE2). I am sure I read somewhere that HD's and CD drives
    were better on separate leads.

    Is it okay to put the second HD on the second lead or should I have both
    HD's on IDE1 and the DVD/CD and the writer on the second lead?

    Any advice would be gratefully received.
