Help with Hard Drive / CD Drive installation.
Posted on 2003-03-15
I'm pretty new at installing any type of hardware, in fact, this is my first time. Anyway, my problem is this: I bought a new hard drive and cd drive and floppy disk drive and I had an extra motherboard sitting around. I wanted to build a new tower. My only problem is that I'm not sure what cables connect to what device on what part of the motherboard. What cables/cords do I need? What part of the motherboard do they go into? The motherboard is an older ASUS board. Also, my hard drive is a 40gb MAXTOR, what jumper settings do I use? It'll be just a primary master drive. The power cables I'm fine with, but the other stuff I'm totally lost. Thanks for any help!
