Can anyone see any problems if I removed my CD Rom, leaving just my DVD Recorder/Player, and connect a third Hard Drive to those cables. I would appreciate your advices.

Should work ok

Remeber to enter CMOS setup in BIOS when drive fitted, to change CD rom to new HDD just run auto detect, save and exit.

Hi, I fitted a PCI IDE card and now have 6 hard drives in my system along with a DVD/CD rewriter and a DVD Rom with no problems. Cheers, Bill

Fit a raid card into a pci slot and give yourself 4 more ide channels.
