i configured bios properly. i was running p-ata only which i changed to p-ata and s-ata. 2ary channel optical readers were ignored as soon as i connected the s-ata disk
Did you configure S-ATA in the bios?
If you don't, the port is treated as an IDE port instead, which is probably why your optical drives disappear.
Win2k "may" have a problem seeing the S-ATA drive so boot to XP to have the first look.
I believe that board natively handles at least 6 physical drives, maybe 8. (plus whatever is on the controller card).

i wanted to avoid that. i will probably replace my current disks with larger capacity ones. less cumbersome.
If you are still having trouble you could also get a couple of hard drive usb/firewire enclosures for about 50$CAD each.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
