I have 2 80 gig HD's and a dvd/rw and a cd/rw. No matter what I do I cannot get all 4 working at the same time ! I've tried all kinds of permutations e.g. the 2 HD's and 1 dvd or cd / rw or both dvd and cd and 1 HD, but can I get the lot ot work together? not on your life. I have very little hair now and can ill afford to go on pulling out what little remains, please help.
Oh by the way... I do have on the motherboard ide's 3 and 4 although I've never tried them.
I've even swopped around the ide cables too... no avail.
What can you get working togehter? and in what order is it a cd/dvd drive that dont work or a hard drive?You may have one of the dvd's that dont like bieng on the same cable as another optical drive try it on its own if it works then most like its one of the drives.
put your hard drives on 3 & 4 then you wont have a problem somtimes cd and dvd dont like to be together or it could be a fault on the ide channel.youll probably have to install the raid drivers before you can put use ide 3&4.ihave 4 hard drives dvd rom cdrw and dvdrw all living happily together touchwood.darren
