4 connectors in IDE cable, is there??

  rickf 19:54 17 Sep 2008

Does the above exist? I have a new M/B with one onboard IDE connector only so could only connect 1 DVD Rewriter + 1 H/D. I prefer to have a dedicated DVD Player, 1 DVD Rewriter and 1 H/D. This configuration is not poss with the usual 3 connector IDE cable. M?B has Sata but I don't use Sata as my H/d hasn't got it. Any info gratefully received.

I would have thought it just a cheap to buy a new sata dvd drive
