5 ide devices in win95 Osr2..Possible?
Posted on 1997-07-06
I have an Asus T2P4 motherboard with a P166. I have 3 hard drives and 1 cdrom connected to the primary and secondary ide controlers on the motherboard. What I want to do is connect another cdrom drive to the ide port on my soundblaster AWE 32 (non Plug and Play). Problem is, I can't get windows 95 to reconize the ide port on the SB AWE. I tried adding new hardware and adding a standard IDE port and setting it up with the same config as the AWE's ide port.. No Luck. Is it possible to have 5 ide ports, in the way I want to do it? If so, can someone tell me how to get windows to see the ide port on the soundcard. I know the port works because I had a cdrom connected to it before I got this new motherboard.
