    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.
