I'm modifying an old setup. My question is can I use the ide cable and molex power which is plugged into my floppy drive with a harddrive? No need for floppy drive due to USB and internet. Same for cd-drive.
Other query is how many harddrives a Abit BE7 (raid version) can support, as I can't find this info online
Floppy drivers use a different ribbon cable and the smaller molex connectors. So no you can't reuse those. And usually IDE mobos have 2 ide slots. So you can use 4.
Master-slave IDE0 and master-slave ide1.
Can you use more?... I don't know I never bothered, I suppose you can buy some ide controller.
