    Is it only possible to have 4 IDE in a PC or can you have more? I want to say that with the right hardware you can have more but I'm not sure about that.

    Thanks

    You can buy a card and add ide channels that way , but on ide 1, ide 2 its always only 2 pieces on each channel, unless you used scsi like mac's do they can make a daisy chain, but for us on pc's its 2. Unless you get a motherboard like mine 4 ide channel's thats 8 devices plus 2 SATA for a total of 10.
