I have two CD writers and a DVD writer, plus 3 80 gig hard drives.

Anyone know how I can configure them as I only have two channels on the main board, plus 2 RAID channels which are not used. Rather not dump two of the componants.

Main board type is a Gigabyte 7VAXP-A Ultra.

One of the forum members went into considerable detail about how to do this a while back - hopefully he/she will spot your plea.

Emirates sent me this email:

Thanks for the advice Edstow about RAID, think I will give it a miss. Does anyone know of how I can set up three hard drives, 2 CD writers and a DVD writer when I have only 2 IDE chanels (4 devices) and 2 RAID sockets. My main board is a Gigabyte 7VAXP-A Ultra.

To which I have replied:

All my machines have a Maxtor IDE controller installed which gives an extra four IDE connections
Have a look at click here

Many online suppliers sell them (or something similar).

Good luck!!
