    HOLY CRAP! After reading that, I now know what an aneurism feels like. Here's a tip. If you would like some help, act like a literate human being and ask sensibly.

          I'm not real sure, only two words I caught were master and slave. I think he thinks he's on some kinky s&m bondage type of message board.

            But really, I think he's saying he used a 44-pin Floppy cable to connect a 50-pin IDE DVD drive, and he's trying to figure out why it wont work. He wants to know if the other 6 pins do anything. I'm no expert, I haven't read a single schematic or pinout on 50 pin IDE connectors, but if I had to guess.........
            If you have 6 pins not connected, and the damn thing doesn't work, then you might need to have those 6 pins connected.
            Maybe I'm wrong, I'm not an expert, so don't listen to me. I assume no liability for anything that may happen if you connect things the way they were designed to be connected.

                i dont understand the question but i think you'll find if you just buy the right adaptor / cable in the first place everything will work OK lol not as if these things are expensive using full-stops (periods) in your question makes it much easier to read you know punctuation rules.

                          I can after a fashion read it. I thought perhaps his native language wasn't English but he 's using slang like cuz so I am proberly wrong. I think the answer is, as said before, try a proper cable first then when you know its a runner you can work on bodgeing (sorry I mean readjusting) the cable connections. Also I seem to remember from work, where I usually had to connect up a cd to load something onto a hd only setup then forget to recover my CD from the stock CD Drive, that a CD drive only needs the power plug to open and not the IDE?
                          As an aside I notice he's using nested brackets (a coder?)god help us if he asks about one of his scripts.

                            I wonder if the "50 pin IDE connector" is really a SCSI connector.

                              My thoughts exactly. First off, properly identify the drive. if it has jumpers for master/slave it is an IDE drive. If it has jumpers for a terminator, paridy, and jumpers of the 2^x, then it is SCSI. If it is SCSI, you need a SCSI controller. If not, take a pic of that messed up config, and use better grammer.
