    I do not believe that card supports ATAPI devices. Connect it to the primary or secondary mobo channel.

    I don't think so, since zip drives are also atapi

    The card supports ATAPI but there are some optical drives that don't get along well with Promise cards. I would suggest running your optical drives off the motherboard IDE headers and use the Promise card for your HDs and or Zip.
    Knowledge is useless, itís what you do with it that counts.
