I would like to add a 160G SATA drive to my system for video editing and storage only. I have an ASUS A7v8X motherboard with onboard SATA connectors. My boot drive is a standard 80G IDE drive and i will keep this as my master boot drive. Will there be any problem mixing IDE and SATA drives within the same system?
as mrdsgs said there wont be any "conflicts" at all... I have recently upgraded my hard-disk from a "Maxtar 30gb IDE drive" to a "Seagate 160gb SATA drive" and kept my old drive for extra storage and backups of the new drive and there aren't NO CONFLICTS at all.... :)
