Hello! I have an ECS Nforce 4 939 motherboard.

I currently have 4 hard drives. I would love to connect them all to the computer. The ribbon that I have only has 2 IDE plugs, Id like to connect 2 more drives.

When I was shopping for ribbons I only found cables with 2 ports. Can someone give me advice on what to do?

Thanks!

Ide channels only support 2 connections per cable. You will not find a 3 connection cable.
You will either have to get a controller card installed or switch to sata drives which I am sure your motherboard will support.
