My PC has two drives with ...
... braided cable B1 comes from the motherboard,
and then there appears to be a "jumper" B2 on to the second drive.
Then, each drive has it's own independent, normal, flat cable F1 and F2.
- Which is power and which data?
In fact I want to simply throw away the blueplatter drive (ie, I want the machine to have only one drive, the green one).
Is it perfectly OK to simply disconnect B2 and F2, to throw away the blue drive?
So, it's perfectly ok to just leave the "jumper" B2 dangling? (It doesn't need, who knows, a terminator or such?)
Feel free to file this under "questions from Mac idiots"; I have not seen such a "jumper" before on my limited time inside PCs. As you know on Macs there is, uh, less access to the drives :)
