    As to the first, your choices look good to me.
    With #2, it also looks good.

    The choices are what I would have chosen too.:oops:

    id disagree with you guys on the first. with the exception of the decrease in size from 5.25 to 3.5" drives, hard drives are always the same physical size (for internals, otherwise they wont fit into the drive bays), and the voltage on EIDE drives are always the same, using a molex power connector!

    the newer drives are capable of higher data transfers, and so have larger buffers to cope, and they also are (sometimes) capable of doing so at lower temps.

    you dont say how many choices you have to make for the first question, but assuming that since the second states to pick two, then the first should only pick one. ill go with
    D - larger onboard buffer!

    Thats MHO

    I thought the same Fergal until I re read and re re read the q, and saw the difference between a PC card hdd and a typical eide hdd.:blink

    Have you not come across these in the A+ book, Fergal ? They were certainly in my (Noah's Ark) Edition of Meyers A+. From memory, I recall that PCMCIA HDDs are Type II and Type III format only.

    Open to correction as always :D

    Not Type II, just Type III.

    I am not 100% But that is what I have put.

    Which of the following characteristics usually distinguish a newer PC card hard disk drive from a typical EIDE hard disk drive?
    a. Lower voltage
    b. Smaller operating temperature range
    c. Smaller dimensions
    d. Larger on-board data buffer.

    I think that the answer are A and C.

    2. Your computer includes a system board with 2 EIDE interfaces and a Fast SCSI host adapter. You want to use one of the EIDE hard disks as the computer's boot device; the system currently boots from the SCSI hard disk that has a SCSI ID of 0. What changes should you make to the computer's configuration so that it can use a specific EIDE hard disk as a boot device? (Select 2 choices.)
    a. Verify that no other device is competing for IRQ or I/O address resources with the host adapter.
    b. Ensure that the SCSI hard disk is not configured in the computer's CMOS settings.
    c. Ensure that the physical ends of the SCSI chain are terminated.
    d. Changethe ID of the SCSI hard disk to 3.

    I think that the answers are A and D.

    no jak, i had heard of the PCMCIA cards before, its just if someone said an HDD card, id think about the PCI controllers, and since it said hdd card drive it just threw me off! the mention of EIDE also threw me off a bit too! lol
