View Full Version : Question about hard drives
03-18-2001, 06:14 PM
I have a mobo that supports UDMA/100. I have 2 hard drives, one being ATA/66 and another is ATA/100. Can I put both of them in? Will I be able to run one at 66 and another at 100, or will the ATA/100 be limited to 66 because of the other drive?

I think they will both be limited to 66, but there really isn't that much of a difference between the two. 99.9% of the time you won't tell the difference. Hard drives can't transfer fast enough to take advantage of the speed.

I have an ATA66 but my mobo wont even recognize that, so it will go as fast as UDMA setting

if you put one drive in each header, each will run at their default "speed". If you put BOTH in one header it will run at the slowest "speed", in this case ata-66.
Are you calling me? What do you want? :D
