Mayby I am confusing 4 ide plugins on the card for the 2 channels.To me if it has 4 spots to plug in a ide cable you should be able to put 8 drives on it i thought....4 on master 4 on slave??? or does it not work that way... This is my first foray into the world of adaptor cards so bear with me.[i always used onboard before this.]
Did you see the pic?It has 4 ide plugins.... so only one drive can go on each ide plugin then?
