If i hav the primary master and slave and secondary master slaves used up (2hd`s, floppy and cd-rom)and I want 2 add another dvd drive, i will b using a controller card for the ide cable, but will this work? (i mean du i select master/slave/cable select at the bak of drive or will it just du it anyway?)
e.g at sartup: primary master : mode 4 hd, etc primary slave : mode 4 cd rom and same with the 2nd master/slave. new drive fitted, will it still work?

This may not be the answer you are looking for but,would it not be better to replace your cd-rom with the dvd-rom and you can use this as cd-rom as well.Is that any help?
