Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

If your motherboard has enough free SATA ports, sure you can add another SATA burner. I’m guessing the Plextor you’d like to add is SATA also?

I have an SATA HDD, plus 2 SATA burners on the PC I’m using to post this message. :wink:

Do you mean that you want to use two burners at the same time writing data from the same HDD? Burning two discs at the same time from a single HDD is not really a good idea. Only fastest drives allow this, but it is certainly safer to have two separate HDDs, each one serving a separate burner.

Sorry if I misinterpreted your question :flower:
