3 Hard Drives on one Desktop PC

Recommended Posts

IDE cables only support 2 devices per cable, but you should have both your hard drives on one and your CD/DVD drive on the other. It should work if you connect the new HD to that cable.


What If I've aready got 2 CD/DVD drives (one of each)?


It's really no biggie. I've got a USB HDD enclosure, I can just put one of my drives in there. I'm really just wanting it to store captured video from my digital camcorder.

I bought an external drive enclosure for my 3rd drive. It was cheap, and easy to install.... I haven't actually needed it though so it just sit there till I fill up the two other drives.


Also makes a nice portable drive if I ever need it.
