Yes, you can.

It's not a race, unless it is a race.

but why? i have one combo that does it ALL, cd's, DVD's and DL dvd's, and it's fast too. less wires in my case for more cooling, simply hook up. anyways, you can run two drives off of the IDE cable and one off of the SATA cable, should work fine. i think i would put those drives on cable select though.

(whoot, 1,000 posts!)

ihave 2 drives right now a dvd rw and cd rw because cdrw burns cds faster than a dvdrw. i might pick up a dvd rom drive too to "back up dvds"

2 drives is all u need. and u only need 2 cuz when copying cds and dvds directly you dont copy to you HDD first and then back onto one. you just burn drive to drive.
the sata is a HDD so as a "3rd drive" you are fine/normal
