    I'd say [HIDE]A[/HIDE] but the vague definition of those two terms in the market could make arguments for other answers!

    B is correct peeps.

    The response asks you to make a distinction between a drive, controller and bus. An IDE drive refers to a drive with a built in controller, and uses a bus of some type. ATA is a spec for an interface bus. ATA is never a controller or drive.

    Now all we need to do is convince the market of this! I find that ATA and IDE are used interchangeably no matter what the definitions may say! :biggrin

    I agree with you Harry. Driving and passing the test are different things......
