This is more of a general question about installing the drives than about the specific products. I have two Plextor PX-806SA DVD Burners that I’m trying to install in a Dell Dimension 2400 at work. The drives are SATA and the computer’s motherboard has only two IDE ports, one attached to the hard drive and the other free. I purchased all the necessary cables, SATA power cables were not included with drives, as well as two SATA to IDE two-way converters. I cannot figure out a way to connect both drives. I looked at SATA multiports but they seem too expensive for my purposes.
If anyone knows of any way to connect two SATA drives to a motherboard with only one available IDE port it would be of great help.
