My old CD-Rom was attached to my soundcard. I have two hard drives attached to my IDE-2. What can I add to get a connection for a new cd-rom? Or do I have to remove one of the hard drives?

Detach the old CD-ROm and attach the new one in it's place. (Unless of coure if you're tryin to run with two at the same time.)

That should work fine.

Neil, do you know if your MB has two IDE controllers or just one? If only one controller, then having 3 devices becomes a problem. you would need to add an IDE controller card, which may slow down whatever device(s) is/are attached to it. If you previously had 2 HD's AND CD-ROM all attached at once, then you likely have 2 IDE controllers and can disregard the above. PS I'm not a computer expert,but I've had a similar problem with my own equipment...pay attertion to Mr. Avatar's posts, he's a smart man ( ?woman). jeff
