I have a Gigabyte 8IPE775 Pro MB which has two IDE ports labelled IDE0 and IDE1 and two SATA ports labelled SATA0 and SATA1. Currently I have my SYstem hard disk in SATA0 and my PIoneer DVD burner in IDE1. What would be the best way to connect a second SATA HDD purely for ripping onto from DVD?
I guess it would have to go into SATA1....that part is pretty logocal....but would that then be sharing with my DVD burner which is on IDE1 or is SATA and IDE completely seperate????
