*Well it did com with a manual, yet it says nothing about where the 
cd/dvd cable goes...Yet I am thinking that since it is an IDE type it 
has to be connected to the IDE connector for which has a cable with 
three harddrives connected...If this is the case and the only place to 
connect it too then I must loose two of my harddrives...At this point I 
am only guessing, yet looking at my old motherboard it has two slots 
IDE1 & IDE2, so I must have used the IDE1 for my harddrive connections, 
and IDE2 went for my CD-writer & my DVD rewriter...I really bet that was 
how I had it then...But with this new motherboard it only has one IDE 
slot...Guess I am out of luck on using it the way I had it prior...

Thanks for the reply
