If this is IDE, they can be run on the same cable, but you are better off running them on separate cables. | Report abuse machmach_3 August 29, 2012 9:59:42 PM Best answer selected by machmach_3. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Link 2 hard drives> Related ressources: ForumLink two hard drives as one big HD??
