What other drives do you have ?you can have a total of 4 without expansion cardsadding a third drive is ok without other cards if you only have a CD or CD-RW, but not both....
Oh i know.I have two HDD'sCD-RW DriveDVD DriveHence my PCI card. ;-)))
Explanation......... each IDE 'channel' (the sockets on the motherboard) will support 2 drives, total 4.if one channel has say HD1 and HD2, then the other channel could have CD1 and CD2, or in your case CD1 and HD3.post back with more info
gotcha, posted while typing
i'd replace the smaller of the HD's with a 'biggy', i'm not sure if windows is optimised for >4 ide devices, how does the BIOS cope, someone else will know better than me
Additional IDE controller cards have their own BIOS.AH
