Why would I ever need that? Is it any better than just using the normal IDE controller?

I only have one IDE device (my DVD writer) so it is worth using the JMicron stuff?

intel boards don't have normal IDE controllers these days, thats why you have the jmicron. Otherwise you can't use your CD/DVD drives :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
