I do have a Serial ATA RAID function on my motherboard, but I cant get it to work with an optical drive, it only seems to work when I use a HDD (which I dont want to do as I used to have both my HDDs on it but had major problems with RAID and lost a lot of data). Ive tried EVERYTHING to get it to work but it just wont do it! It has a phobia of optical drives!
In my opinion, if you are simply looking to install extra devices, steer clear of the adapter cards which also have RAID functions. I tried one once and, in a nutshell, it was so unreliable that I got my money back on it.
