Post UDMA Cables & Vanishing IDE Devices

My DVD and CDRW share an old 40 wire IDE cable, but when I tried to use a nice new UDMA (80 wire), WinXP couldn't see the drives

I want to mod the case & use shiny new round cables, and the only ones I have seen are 80 wire.

Ideas anybody?

When they are on the 80wire cable do they show up on the post screen when it is detecting your IDE devices?

Have youe tried putting your HDD on primary master and DVD as primary slave and cdrw as secondary master?

1. Can't remember
2. No, but I've read elsewhere that this will drop HDD performance to DVD's ATA-33...
