DVD-RW with SATA only connector

Postby Matrix3 on Mon Mar 31, 2008 10:00 am

I have only two SATA connectors on my MB and both are used for hard drives. Can I use SATA DVD-RW drive by any chance?

You can buy a SATA controller card and put the DVD-RW on it or move one of the hard drives to it. Here's a thread discussing some that work with optical drives:
