Yes you can but one thing to mention. Some DVD writers do not like being a slave they insist on being master. Obviously you only have 2 IDE channels and your hard drive is one of the masters. That said it should work ok you might need to swap one of them over if there is a problem. Of course they may not have a problem its a matter of trying and seeing.
