-the IDE cables in my computer have 2 female plugs i have a hard drive and a DVD drive connected to each cable. does it make any difference at all as to which drive is the master and which is the slave?
-some of the IDE cables out there have grounding wires that are supposed to be connected to one of the screws that mount the drive to the case. ive been reading in some places that its a bad idea to connect this grounding wire to the hard drives. theres also a grounding wire on the cable that goes to my 'A' drive. could someone tell me if these grounding wires should be connected and where?
