Default Adding a hard drive question ???

sponsored links

 
Ok here goes :

In my pc I have a 40gb hard drive, a dvd rom, a cd writer & a dvd writer.

I have one cable going from the motherboard to the hard drive & looping to the dvd rom.

The second cable going from the motherboard to the cd writer & looping to the dvd writer.

So there are no more spare sockets on the motherboard.

I want to add a new 80gb hard drive without having to remove any of the cd devices or the main hard drive.

What would be my solution to this ?

Is there a cable that will allow 3 devices to be attached to the cable ?


Please help coz i'm getting mega low on hard drive space !!!

You need a PCI device for a new IDE channel. Ask for it at your computer store. It's an ordinary device.
