Well...here I go again!
I originally asked this question a few years ago (see:
The end result was a controller made by GSI. Unfortunately, since upgrading to Windows 2000, the GSI product no longer works.
I purchased a Promise Ultra100 but it doesn't work with CD-ROM drives (and nowhere in the manual does it state this). In case you haven't read my previous question. In a nutshell, I'm seeking a controller card that will allow me to connect 7 CD-ROM drives to a computer. 1 IDE and 3 CD-ROM to the built-in IDE interface (on motherboard) and 4 IDE cd-rom drive on a PCI controller (that controller was made by GSI).
BTW, GSI went bankrupt a few years ago.
