usb enclosure hack
2 Seagate ST340015A IDE hds (40 gb each)
1 Rosewill External usb 2 ide enclosure (pl2506 controller chipset)
1 40 conductor ide cable (mobo-slave-master)
way, wayyy to much free time.
OK, given the above items, is it possible to run both drives at the same time from the one enclosure? Fitting inside the enclosure is not an issue.
So far, I have removed the original ide cable the came with the enclosure controller. And, installed my own ide cable. The only drive that is detected is the one jumpered as master, at either location on the cable(master vs slave). No matter what the other drive is jumpered as(slave, cable select), it is not detected. I tried setting both as master and neither are recognized. I have run out of ideas... suggestions would be great. And please dont suggest getting another enclosure. IM CHEAP!
