Installing an EIDE HDU along side a SATA unit

By brightonmilky ·
Can anyone help? I've just installed an EIDE HDU alongside a SATA HDU in my new pc. the EIDE unit will be secondary to the SATA one. My PC doesn't see the EIDE unit at all. I've tried setting the jumper on the EIDE unit in various configurations but it makes no difference. Can anyone suggest how I can solve this problem?

Thanks.

It is possible to selectively enable or disable the IDE controller ports. On some you can also control what type of device the ide controller will allow to be active.

Without more, HDD make,model. PC make,model ,etc. can only guess. Try the drive with no jumper, just a guess.

SATA & EIDE should BOTH be set to Master ...

Since each HDD is autonomous of each other, not only on separate channels but also on separate interfaces.

Your BIOS settings control whether SATA or IDE is the boot disc, NOT which one of the HDDs is master or slave.
