I have an AMD-Athlon 600Mhz with a Slot A motherboard which has one connector for hard-disks, one for cd-roms and one for floppy disks (I assume this is normal).
I currently have two hard-drives connected and two cd-rom drives and one floppy disk drive (the leads allowed up to two connectors each)
I have just acquired a third hard-drive and I was wondering whether it is possible to add this drive as well as the others by buying a power and lead splitter and splitting them three ways. Is this possible or is the maximum a two-way split?
Don't dispair, they are not expensive, probably $25 to $50. But first make sure you have an available PCI slot on the motherboard. You just insert the controller card into an available PCI slot, and run the ribbon cable from the controller card to the new HDD. When you boot up the system will recognize the new card and the drives attached.
www.scan.co.uk have them (or did last time i checked!), cant check now as im @ work and scan is not on our wonderful list of permitted sites.... Most pc shops sell them, stay away from pcwolrld- they are a rip off (im not refering to pcworld USA here so please dont post back saying how good they are!!)
