Question about Seagate HDD 40GB 7200RPM ATA100 2MB (ST340014AP) Hard Drive
I contacted the manufacturer of the chipset in my external hd enclosure. The chipset is PL2506. It says it can handle two ide drives on the same controller. Question is this: I have two identical seagate 40 gigs attached to the enclosure. The only drive that is detected is the one jumpered as master. It doesn't matter what the second drive is jumpered as. It isn't detected unless I switch the master from one drive to the other. Then the first isnt detected. It's like the controller is refusing to recognize the attached slave. What wire(s) need to be present/absent in a 40 conductor ide cable for this to work?
