Hard drive compatibility
Posted on 1998-10-28
I have an IBM 10GB 7200rpm hd as a primary/master. Also have a old seagate 1.2gb as secondary/master and cd-rom drive as a secondary/slave. The problem I have is that the IBM drive intermittently makes a clicking noise when there is drive access. It appears to be more prevalent when it has warmed up. The only thing is that when I disconnect the seagate drive(power and data cable)clicking goes away from the IBM drive. I am wondering if this maybe some kind of an interference from the seagate drive or maybe an incomptibility between the 2 drives. However, I've seen incompatibility across master/slave but not across primary/secondary. Any help would be appreciated.
