What they are talking about is something similar to what I said a while back. The difference is they're using your PC's internal connections (the same way your own hard disk and optical drives are) instead of USB.Originally Posted by JamiLee;2769785;
The whole master/slave comes from this: in older PCs, your PC had several - generally two - "channels" for drives. Each channel would have its own port on the motherboard. For each channel you could put two drives. One would be designated the master, the other the slave. Newer PCs use a different way of connecting hard drives, and you don't need to worry about this.
You could certainly do it that way, but the USB enclosure method is easier in that you don't need to take apart the PC you attach the busted hard drive to.
