How many drives can I attach?

I have one hdd, one dvd rom and two dvd rewriters. I want to add another hdd internally.

OS is XP

Normally it is just 4. But depending on the model of your motherboard, it may have the extra IDE connector ( IDE 3 )

Do you know the model number? delta - L or delta ILSR?

It is easy to check on the motherboard. Although on this, the SATA version, it lists all boards. strange. click here

If IDE 3 is on your board, you can use it for just ONE device, I think. I don't think that it will support two devices from that channel.

This is the MSI K7N2 Delta 2 Platinum. Scroll to SATA specs.
click here. Not the deluxe.

So I would strongly guess that you have an IDE 3.

Lucky you.;-)

Just checked manuals. This K7N2 delta has 3 IDE's click here

This K7N2 delta has just 2 IDE's click here

So you may not be as lucky, as I first thought.:-(

It would be best to whip the sides off the tower and check.
