Third HD

Hi Guys,

What equipment do I need to install a third HDD and maybe a fourth? All my IDE's are taken up with two HDD and two players.

Thanks in advance.

You would need a IDE controller card. You might want to consider a card that supports RAID.

I was at BestBuy this morning, and they're available for around 30 bucks. You might be able to get it at an even lower price elsewhere.

Thanks NetRyder,

Is there instructions that come with the card? Will it be easy for Xp to figure out what I am doing? Thanks again.

No probs :)

Yeah, it's not hard to set up.
Basically, you just fit the card into a PCI slot, and plug in your new hard disks to the card instead of the onboard IDE controller.
