Are we connecting up IDE hard drives here???

If that is the case, NO. You need to get an IDE Controller Card, or a motherboard with PATA/RAID Controller on it.

BTW, the IDE Controller Card and PATA/RAID Controller work best on hard drive. I have had issues with various optical drives.

Main Rig - AMD FX-8350x8 4.0Ghz CPU, 4x 8Gb (32Gb) DDR3 Ram, Gigabyte GA-970A-D3, GeForce GT 970 4Gb, 1x 256Gb SSD\8Tb (3+2+2+1) SATA HDD, DVDRW, SB X-Fi, Win 10 (64-bit)
Asus N61JV-JX231V - Intel Core i5 3437u (1.9 - 2.4 GHz), 12GB, 640GB, 16" Display, nVidia 325M 1Gb, DVD-RW, Win 10 (64-bit)
