My CS5 system has 3 "drives"
1) C: System
2) D: DVD
3) E: Raid
I want to add a hard drive to the above to put other data, such as images, data (including some massive Digital Juice files)
My motherboard is a ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366
I see two main cables coming out of it.
#1 cable is plugged into my C: system drive
#2 cable is plugged into my D: DVD drive
How do I add a 3rd drive -- or is this not possible with the ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366.
Is there some kind of a "splitter" or special connector I can add to either the mother board #2 cable / connection that will let me add a 3rd hard drive?
Asus site says 6 sata ports
Buy a sata hard drive AND a sata cable, if your motherboard did not come with one more cable, and connect
I poked around, and sure enough found a couple spare sata ports. Connected a sata cable I had to the new hard drive -- and after the usual Windows disk management steps -- I now have the 3rd drive.
Appreciate your help!
