Does the cable connection matter in relation to a master/slave configuration? In other words, does it matter which connection on the cable is attached to the master drive versus the slave? I was just wondering as I just attached two HDs to my G3 All in One and it would be a hell of a lot easier to make the cables reach if it did not matter about these connections. Thanks in advance.

It is a standard that your master drive needs to be on the end of the cable

BUT you can boot from a master or a slave so set your cable to where it works the best and set the drive on the end to master then boot from the slave if need be
