  • Page 22 About IDE IDE (Enhanced IDE/E-IDE) is one of the standards applied to the connection between personal computers and their peripherals. A computer motherboard provides two IDE connectors (primary and secondary). (Although, some motherboards provide only a primary connector.) You may connect up to two IDE devices (hard disk, CD-ROM, or CD-R drives) to the connectors using an IDE cable.
  • Page 23 Hard disk (master) To make the best use of the performance of the CRW2200E drive, Yamaha recommends you connect it as a sole secondary master. Note The CRW2200E drive is shipped with the SLAVE setting. Reset to MASTER if you connect the drive solely to the secondary IDE cable.
  • Page 24 • When the operating system starts with the SCSI hard drive, a primary IDE connector may have no IDE devices. In such a case, Yamaha recommends you connect the CRW2200E drive as a primary master.
