David you were the one that brought up that IDE drive “A” & “B” labeling etc. on that V2 to V2a board. Do you have time to look into it. Do you have a V2a board.

It's the V2a board that Ed just mailed out this week.
I've also tried decreasing the pull up resistors on the 7403's to 330 ohm.
I noticed that David Fry has suggested using a 74S03 in his notes, unfortunately I don't have any here to try.

Assembled a dual IDE board this evening, and am having an interesting problem.
I'm using 2 Syba IDE-->CF cards with 128mb CF Flash (have also tried some 4mb Kingston types).
If I output directly to ports I can control the hex display and select drive "A" or "B", although the "A" and "B" drive LED's seem reversed.
Using MYIDE.COM it will only initialize if both drives are present, and then I can't select drive "B" from the program. It will access and format drive "A" just fine.
I've tried swapping 74LS03's out, and changing them to 7403, 74LS38 and 7438 types with no improvement. I've also swapped out every other chip on the board, and resoldered everything.
Any ideas of where to look?
