Epox 8K3A+ question
I am not currently ina RAID array,so my IDE 3&4 slots are open,is it possible to use these slots as extras so I can put my CDRW and my DVD on a different IDE?
Instead of running both on one cable?
Can this be done?

You can use them as IDE channels without RAID but only for non-optical devices. Put your HDD on 3 &4 and your CD/CR-RW/DVD's on 1&2

assuming you loaded the drirver for the RAID controller when you loaded windows, you should have no problems(you probably remember during the beginning of Windows install it asked you to press F6 to specify 3rd party drivers). Just make sure you don't have a RAID array defined, plug the HDDs into 3&4, opticals into 1&2 and you should be good to go...

I tryed it and no go,it wouldn't detect the hard drive.And no I didn't load the drivers when installing windows
I didnt think I would need it,I was wrong.
