Need to install a IDE Hard drive on a Machine with SATA on motherboard and IDE for CDROM
Posted on 2005-04-03
I have just purchased a new Dell 8400 machine that came with single SATA 80GB HD. I have also a DVD burner and DVD drive hooked on IDE channel on motherboard. I recently purchased a IDE 80Gig hard drive that i want to install as backup but I only have one IDE connector on Motherboard from which both connectors from cable are hooked to DVD burner and DVD Driver. My IDE only has IDE connection.
Is there a way i can install that drive as backup inside.
