i built the puter in 04 using a Asus P4P800-E Deluxe motherboard. No trouble yet but a dvd/cd rom bit the dust and bought a Lite-on ihas424-98 do everything burner. Trouble came when found that new burner was Serial-ata. I have 2 Sata ports on motherboard with one used for harddrive. Need to know if i can use other Sata port for burner or do i have to get a Ide burner or an adapter to go between burner and mobo. If i can use other Sata port is there a lot of bios set up to recognize the burner???? Maybe some one else has had this problem and still remembers how to cope. :thumbsup:

of course you could use SATA port on your mainboard...no need to do something with BIOS...except for Boot Priority...make sure that you Boot Priority is your hardrive not the burner...
