RAID Question

I have the specs listed below. and i was wondering about RAID. I have 4 ports, IDE 0, 1, 2, 3,. IDE 0+1 work for all non-RAID devices. What i want to do it know if i can use the ports 2+3 without using RAID with hard drives. I can you can not use ATAPI devices on them, but is it possible to add the entra Hard drives on 2+3 and have all CD-ROM drives on 0+1? (this is not a RAID config.)


i use the raid channels as regular ide channels....

i have master hdd on ide 0
slave hdd on a raid channel ide 2
dvdrom/cd burner on ide1

at first nothing on the raid channels would get recognized....then i realized that i did not enable onboard raid:eek:


i just enabled onboard raid in my bios.......oh and then i installed the latest drivers for it too............then it worked fine...

im using the raid channels as regular ide......

i have no clue bout raid setups tho:(

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
