IDE Cables...

K5S5A mobo
Primary - 60 GIG Western Digital 7200
Secondary - 100mb ZIP Drive
Primary - CD-RW Drive
Secondary - DVD-ROM Drive


OK, I just restored my old 16 GIG Maxtor HD. Is there any way I can hook this up to my comp? Even though all my IDE Cables are in used by the 4 drives above.

Thanks.
Dave

There is another way. They have kits to take internal hard drives and convert them into usb hard drives. I believe that the above mentioned site as well as many others have the kit.
