I want to install an ide dvd drive to a HP a6137c computer that has one sata dvd burner installed. Can I do this with just an ide ribbon or do I need an adapter? Is there any type of schematic to follow for this? Do both drives need to be connected to each other? Or, can they be separately connected to the motherboard? I've installed and/or replaced secondary drives but only with the same connections. Thanks!
