I have a HP CD-RW (secondary master)and a 50x CD-ROM (secondary slave)on my secondary ide controller. I recently bought a Imation Internal Super Floppy and it says that I am suppose to hook it up to the secondary IDE controller.
 
Is there a way that I can keep both the cd-rom and the HP cd-rw and ADD the Imation Super Floppy to the secondary ide controller?

Move the 50x to Primary Slave and put the Super Floppy as Secondary Slave. This is the only way.

No, You can only have 2 things per IDE Controller,
The best bet would be to have your Hard drive and 50X CD Rom on the
primary controller.
Put the HP CD-RW & the Super Floppy on the secondary.

Hope this helps
