Do I have to dump my two optical drives???

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi

Got most of system yesturday and installed everything no problem... but, when if got to the 2 DVD-RW I have I couldn't figure out how to connect the to the motherboard.

I had them on my 775 socket board using IDE connector... but, my P67-UD5 doesn't appear to facilitate this feature...

How do I connnect them then...?

IDE to SATA converter? or you can get a PCI/e to IDE card

Might be better to just get a SATA drive, otherwise not much you can do about the lack of IDE ports =/

Hmm, according to this image you are correct.

If your 2 optical drives don't support SATA, you can get an adapter, but I have no idea how much they cost or where to buy them. Ive only ever seen one in real life and it was big and ugly, might be worth purchasing 2 cheap drives?

I bought a new pioneer as the sata to ide convertors looked ugly as hell... plus I have the silverstone rv02 case and I was worried that if I had that great thing hanging off the back of the dvd drive I wouldn't be able to fit SLI... thanks reps
