    What motherboard do you have?
  2. Best answer
    Connect the SATA HDD to SATA port of MB. And connect the IDE HDD's to IDE/PATA cable one as "Master" and one as "Slave". For PATA cable connect one end to MB, and the other end to IDE Master HDD, and then connect the remaining HDD on the remaining header as Slave.
