Motherboard - IDE/SATA
My motherboard is IDE though has an additional 2 SATA connectors.
A couple of things :
1) Am I able to run both IDE & SATA interface drives (eg. HDD & DVD) from my motherboard. If so what do I need to do. I wish to run a HHD, DVD rom & DVD burner.
2) If I am unable to do that then how do I connect my HDD, DVD-Rom & DVD Burner to my motherboard when it only has room for 2 devicies.
I currently have everything connencted via IDE interface. I have a SATA HDD of which I have used an adapator to convert to IDE. I also have a IDE DVD rom & IDE DVD burner. I wish to upgrade my burner & it is so differicult to find an IDE DVD burner is Australia, so I think it maybe better to just purchase an SATA interface burner & just an adapotor, the same way that I have connected my HDD.
