    Default HDD Question...

    Hello all...I have SOYO SY-K7V Dragon Plus! mobo, and am running 2 HDDs, one is Maxtor 6Y080L0 (80Gb) and another is Quantum Fireball AS20.5 (20Gb)....my question is, are these 2 HDDs ATA 100 or ATA 133 and if my mobo can run ATA 133....another question is how can i tell lol....the reason I ask these questions is that I run one HDD as slave to the other and I bought ATA133 rounded cable for them but the computer couldnt detect the HDD i guess...I replaced the rounded with my original flat IDE cable and everything worked again....Thank you...

    Best I can find is that the Maxtor is a 133, the Fireball is 100.

    Cheers

    Thanks for looking...so this would mean that probably both HDDs are running at 100...now should an ATA 133 cable have any problems hooking these two HDDs to the mobo? ie. do i need ATA 100 cable?
