Oh no, both the harddrive and the DVD player are on 1 IDE ribbon now. 
But, due to the case design, the DVD has to go to the end of the ribbon, 
as it's stretched to it's limit now.

BUT!! We can put an end to this thread, my ASUS Motherboard is on it's 
way back, as of yesterday, I just found out, and I'll turn this brick 
MSI motherboard into a text mode "Hunt The Wumpus" server.I am NOT 
impressed with this board. I know darn well it'll play a stickin' DVD 
without any sweat. Thanks to everyone who tried to assist me, but I'm 
just giving up. It mounted "True Lies" once again and played it. Then 
refused to do it a second time. I can't take the mental exhaustion. I've 
been around the block, more than once, and this thing just beat me like 
I was a red-haired stepchild.

I shall henceforth go in peace. Ric
