  1. It will work fine with CD/DVD drives.
  2. Actually i dont think so.
    those 2 extra slots are for the onboard RAID/IDE controller.

    you can run up to 4 cd drives on the standard slots, but i THINK only IDE hard drives can be run on the extra channels.

  3. Yes, they do, but I wouldn't recommend running non-hard disk devices on them.

  4. This may be a very dumb question, but do you have to connect two drives to use the raid ports? Could u just use them as normal extra hdd controllers?
  5. It's not neccessary to connect 2 HDs in order to use RAID controller. You can use them as normal IDE controller.
