[QUOTE=pinto2;2006226]Can’t foresee any problems with 80 conductor IDE cable (39 pin it is).
Don’t know if your Maximus has an Intel IDE, (ie drive compatible) controller though…
[I]Edit. [/I] Hmmm, [B]JMicron® JMB368[/B] PATA controller it is. Think you might run into problems here. Search our forum for details and make sure you find JMicron drivers compatible with optical drives.[/QUOTE]
