    There is a PRIMARY IDE and a SECONDARY IDE, at the max u can add 4 devices to ur IDE connector (i.e: 2 devices from each IDE connector) and not more than tat.

    Also, an IDE cable has jus 3 connectors, 1 goes into the IDE slot and the remaining 2 are present to connect to ur 2 remaining devices.

    Oops sorry, forgot to mention the PCI IDE CARD.... :oops:

    cheers n e-peace.......
