I had brokem motherboard ane need to access data from harddisk. so I bought new motherboard, but it has only one IDE slot. and I have four IDE devices. so one cdrom I throw away. The ata 33 harddisk works good at full speed, but takes an eternity to find it by BIOS. after that it works great. The ata 100 hardisk is found immediatelly during post and I think, it is working at higher speed than through IDE slot.
I thought it was not working, because of bad description on the board. One sata is for one direction, second sata is for second direction. Nothing like two sata into one ide at the same time. So a while of reading manuals and looking at photos here cleared the problem. And there is a LED on the right side, I havent noticed that, maybe it is not lightning if it is not working.
