I have a ton of IDE cables and I can not get ANY drive set as slave to work on them except for 1! Are they ALL bad? I mean really! Some are the standard 18 in flat IDE cables. Some are 24in flat cables. 2 are 36in round IDE cables. None of these work. The only one that works is a 18in round IDE cable.
None of my drives will work set as a slave on the slave plug on the IDE cable. I can set one as slave and put it on the Master position and it works but not slave. Does this mean they are all bad?
As far as I know there are no BIOS settings to create this so the cables must be bad, the one working confirming the others.
