Default Re: EIDE Controller and multiple devices

1 - Your PC can only support 4 IDE devices.

Solution - Buy a SCSI card (2940U2W) and use SCSI CD drives or Hard drives or both(Ultra2 or Ultra 160), you could have up to 45 drives with a three channel SCSI card. They are definitely faster. And better yet add
a RAID card and run a Striped set with Parity. Now that's cooking.

That's my two cents for what it's worth.
