Connecting 8 IDE devices on NT workstation? (worth 150pts)
Posted on 1998-08-18
I'm trying to find an IDE controller card that will co-exist with a motherboard IDE controller. The purpose is so that I may connect 1 harddrive and 7 IDE CD-ROMs in one computer (NT v4 workstation).
BEFORE you suggest the Promise Technology product...STOP! It's doesn't work! This company mislead me, their product doesn't work with CD-ROM devices. I'm currently stuck with a useless product.
The first person that provides me with a workable answer gets 400pts (by this Friday)!!!!
I'm currently researching the following vendors so don't bother to suggest these: SIIG, BOCA..
In addition, I'll require a product that will allow a user definable cache for all 7 IDE CD-ROM drives.
The most important part is the controller though.
