For the PATA UDMA-66 Cable, (80 pin) it is not straight between the Master and Slave connectors. One way to verify this is to get two Hard Disk, Set both Jumper to CS mode and plug into the computer. The one that is plug into the Master will act as Master and the one that plug into Slave will remain slave. Your assumption that the two connectors are hooked on parallelly is not true.

WD means western digital hard disk,not ATA 100,ATA 100 means the hd transfer speed is 100Mb/sec(teori)

Dont know is it related of not, 2 of my hard disk which i install fan on die faster than the one that i din install fan which currently still running smoothly without bad sector after 4years..........so for me i think the magnet from the fan got little bit related to the dead of my hard disk............
