Installing a DVD WRITER

I want to install a New DVD writer but how do i go about it?
I already have 2 HDD and a dvd-rom and a cd writer. I only have 2 IDE slots on the mother board can i buy an adaptor to allow me to run 3 pieces of hardware of the 1 IDE slot on motherboard, or can i run it from a PCI card, if so what is the best way to go?


You might as well take out either the DVD-ROM or CD Writer, since the DVD Writer will read DVDs and burn CDs.



Well I have an XP Pro sp1 system.

Had a dvd rom and cd burner before.

Bought a RICOH DVD+RW/+R MP5125A from PC world just last week for £203.

Arrived 3 days late (as the lame delivery driver could not decipher my address silly git), took it out of box, installed it in less than 4 minutes.

Removed case (defussed static of course), removed first dvd rom drive, made sure new one was set to secondry master (already was) ide cable in slotted it in fixed 2 screws in closed case rebooted, windows picked it up, installed drivers, then installed all that lovely dvd free o.e.m software such as Nero burning rom
InterVideo WinProducer,
InterVideo DVD and NeoDVDstandard4.

Piece of piss :)))))>
