sometimes curiosity killed the cat, then again...
Okay guys, today I got really curious, and was thinking about hard drives, and slaving hard drives; what it boils down to is IDE cables and connections, but you can't have IDE connections or cables for the matter without a motherboard.
Well I was wondering just how much MAXIMUM SPACE you could get, i say a 120 gb hd and another one slaved for a total of 240 gb of hd space. now I was wondering if you could find a hard drive with an extra Primary IDE connector; for example my current Asus mobo has three IDE connectors on it, one, the primary, is for the HD, then one for the CD drive(secondary) and one for the Floppy drive(tertiary). What I would like to find, see, or possibly have is a mobo with an extra primary IDE connector; example two for hard drives(which means you'd have two primary hard drives and two slaved HDs), one for floppy and one for the CD drive.
has anyone seen this, and more importantly, is it even possible?
I mean it would be a rather cool, however pointless, combo to have for 120 or 160 gb hard drives; you'd have 480 to 640 gbs of hard drive space, which would never find use, but would it would be cool to say "I've got 640 giga bytes on my computer, what have you got? A dinky little 40 gig? Muwhahahahahahahahahahaha!".........yes, that was an evil laugh!
