Default MB Asus P5K with CD/DVD Drive

Hi, I need some helping installing CD/DVD Drive with Asus P5K Mother Board. I cannot seem to find any internal I/O Connectors for CD/DVD Drive but only floppy and hard drive. Thank you.


I was wondering. Do I use the same line as the hard drive and make my CD/DVD Drive the master and my hard drive as slave?

I have this same board and apparently it only has 1 ide connection. This turns out to be ok for me because luckily i opted for the sata dvd/rw instead of ide.

It should be possible to run your hdd as master and dvd/cd rom as the slave on the cable though.

The hard drive should be the master and the optical drive should be on slave.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

you should have sata hdds though............ so you will only be running the optical drive through the ide cable so I don't see the problem unless your using an older hdd in the build
