View Full Version : SATA drive connections

28-02-2010, 03:54 PM
My Asus motherboard has 2 SATA ports and & 1 PATA (IDE).
I have a DVD & hard drive connected to the SATA ports, and a CD to the IDE connection.

If I want to fit a second SATA hard drive, how would I connect it?
There is a spare SATA power plug.

You'll have to buy a PCI SATA card. Since, you cant share SATA (like you can with IDE)

Hi mzee, I couldn't figure out how to private message you... so the only way I could think of is to quick reply an open thread and hope that it gets through to you.

Regarding your post at http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/showthread.php?t=91775

is there any way you can send me Web Gate? I've spent the last two hours trying to find it on the web and can't see it anywhere.

Kind regards,
