Do optical drives need an ATA 66/100/133 cable?
I am short on the 80 wire ata100 cables at my home. Can I use an old 40 wire cable on a dvd-rom and a dvd+rw and not take a performance hit? I read somewhere that optical drivers, wether reading or writing never surpass ATA33 speeds? Or do they need ata100?
One hour of life, crowded to the full with glorious action, and filled with noble risks, is worth whole years of those mean observances of paltry decorum, in which men steal through existence, like sluggish waters through a marsh, without either honor or observation. - Sir Walter Scott
