You could be onto something :-)

You're not "supposed" to use an IDE drive jumpered as a slave, unless the
master is present, so pd doesn't support that configuration.

If you'd like to do an experiment, please locate the two lines in pd.c that
include the pattern:


Change the 0xa0 to 0xb0, and recompile pd.c. That will address the
commands to the slave. If that works, I'll add support for slave
drives in pd. Please let me know.
