I'm putting together a new system. I had planned to use two HDs. But the first is ATA 100 and the second ata 66. Can I run them both on the same 80 pin cable. Or, should I run the second off the secondary ide with the cd rom.
If you run them both on the same cable you performance will go down a little. The drives will only run as fast as the slowest one. They should work together if you want them too, but if you have only one cd rom you might want to put in on the same cable as the cd rom.
