Installing IDE Hard Drives for computer


IDE stands for "Integrated Drive Electronics" is the base term defining IDE. In 1986 It was firstly use of Compaq computers by Western Digital. It means that in the hard drive the electronic controller integrates itself. Hard drive contains the hard disk and stores your data. The IDE makes the drives be more flexible and standardized. A disk that stores the data is placed inside a solid encasement. Data can be accessed from any part of the drive immediately; because this disk rotates with the speed of almost 5400 or 7200 RPM. It stores the data permanently by using magnetic technique. So data keep stored on the drive even after the power supply is turned off.

There are two types of “IDE hard drives” which are 40pins and 80pins IDE hard drive. It is very easy to use hard drive as master or slave by adjusting the IDE hard drive jumper settings. Regarding Master and Slave Configuring an IDE drive requires very little skill; there are only a few things to know. The controller will allow two devices on the cable.
