So I guess this board is kind of 'old' and I tried getting help elsewhere (including Asus) but haven't had any real luck. It has these sata connections:

Sata 1, 3 and 4 which are Intel ICH7R
2 EZ raid connectors
1 sata raid (jmicron)

The first three are being used w/ three sata drives in IDE mode. I also have two (ide) opticals. In short, I wanted to drop one of the ide opticals and use a sata blu-ray player. To my knowledge, I cannot use the optical sata on the EZ raids...and then I've heard both ways about it running on the jmicron. One (supposed) solution is to move a sata drive to the jmicron and bump the blu-ray player to say sata 4? I was hoping to get a solid anwser before having to experiment.. Any help is appreciated :)
