There are usually two IDE controllers on the motherboard, called primary and secondary IDE controller. A wide 80-core cable can be connected to any IDE controller just disconnected. The hard disk and any existing DVD players are connected via those IDE cables. A maximum of two disks or players can be connected per IDE cable. A maximum of four disks or players can therefore be installed with two IDE controllers on the motherboard. The disconnected hard disk was properly connected to the first primary IDE controller. In the hdd recovery the entire process of the same should be properly serviced.
Master and slave
Since two devices can be connected to an IDE cable, it is important that they are kept apart. This is done by giving them a name: MASTER and SLAVE. By default, the hard drive that Windows is on is called MASTER. A possible second disc or DVD player on the same cable is then called SLAVE. The hard drive that Windows is on is therefore usually the MASTER on the primary controller.
IDE or SATA Drive
There is a difference between IDE or PATA drives and SATA drives. In this example, an IDE drive is used connected with an 80-core wide cable. However, a SATA drive is connected with a thin, narrow cable. The SATA drive can be replaced in the same way as the IDE drive. However, if this is set up in a RAID configuration, then caution is required in a RAID configuration, two or
