hi guys
i have a gigabyte motherboard with only one ide port which is connected to HDD and ODD.Now I want to buy a new hardrive of sata interface.My board has 4 sata ports.can i use the old ide hard drive with the new one and how can i make the master slave arrangement.
Now the hard drive is master and dvd drive is slave so if i install new hardware is there any changes to be made to the connection?
need help.


yes you can use both HDDs. Master slave is only for IDE drives. So even if u add a new SATA hard disk the previous master slave setting will be intact. But i think u have to make some changes to bios to be able to boot from old HDD.
