An IDE cable connects a hard drive or CD drive to the main board of the computer.
It would be best to configure the CD drive as the Master and have the hard drive set to slave. This configuration normally allows the CD drive to function when hard drive is not bootable on a single channel IDE.
The letter IDE in an IDE hard drive stand for Integrated Drive Electronics. Most computers today have an EIDE hard drive, which stands for Enhanced Integrated Device Electronics.
IDE stand for Integrated Drive Electronics.
The only advantage of using a IDE hard drive is maximum compatibility. It appears that SATA hard drives have a lot more advantages than an IDE hard drive.
The IDE drive has no direct correlation to the AGP bus.
No. You would have to purchase an adapter to connect a SATA drive to an IDE controller.
yes. pata and ide are the same thing.
An IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) is the controlling interface for the hard disc or optical drive (CD ROM etc.). The controller was integrated (hence the name) into the hard disc unit rather than being mounted on the computers motherboard. The first IDE units appeared in 1986 and has been replaced by the ATAPI (SATA) drives today.
Yes a sata hard drive is better the an ide hard drive because it has faster transfer speeds
ATA and IDE use the same interface type, so the answer is YES, you can put the a ATA and an IDE in the same computer.
Yes. But your computer needs to be properly configured for a SATA optical drive. Also, a SATA drive is better than a IDE drive.
If replacing the optical drive on a primary IDE controller, it is important it is compatible with the CD Rom drive. The IDE data cable must be connected and you must have the power cord plugged in.
The smallest storage access unit on an IDE hard drive is a sector.
It depends on the hardware you have. if you have only SATA in your computer you can buy an IDE to USB external case then you can install the IDE drive into the case for an extra drive or backup
Integrated Drive Electronics
Integrated Drive Electronics (IDE)
An IDE connector is used to connect a CD-ROM drive or hard drive to a motherboard, with a long and flat ribbon cable.
IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) is a standard electronic interface used between a computer motherboard's data paths or bus and the computer's disk storage devices. The IDE interface is based on the IBM PC Industry Standard Architecture 16-bit bus standard, but it is also used in computers that use other bus standards. Most computers sold today use an enhanced version of IDE called Enhanced Integrated Drive Electronics. In today's computers, the IDE controller is often built into the motherboard.
There are various places one can purchase an IDE hard drive for laptops. One can try to find an IDE hard drive at a computer store such as BestBuy or one can purchase one online from sites such as eBay.
The best IDE channel to connect on a hard drive is the Primary IDE channel, Also known as IDE 1 in dell computers
No. IDE Hard Drive cannot be replaced with a Sata Hard Drive because the connectors are different. example. if you have sata hard drive installed on your machine. and you purchase IDE Hard drive. you won't be able to install the IDE hard drive where the Sata hard drive was because the IDE connectors are a different shape and size towards the Sata hard drive connectors.
integrated drive electronics is the Full form of the IDE cable.
master if the ide cable has a single drive connection. if the ide cable has the master and slave connection. then set the drive to master with slave.
Not sure what you need to know exactly but all you need to do is plug the IDE cable into the IDE slot of the DVD drive.
