Mobo only one ide connection socket for HDD & CD-Rom

Hi,
I have just renewed my Motherboard to a Gigabyte s-series and find it only has one ide cable socket whereas my old motherboard had 2 sockets one for my hard disk and one for the CD-Rom.
Is there any way I can connect both items to the one socket.
Appreciate any help with this problem
Thanks.

Yes you can add both your HDD and CD-ROM Drive with the same IDE, get a IDE data interface cable (BUS) atleast three connection point. Add 1 to mobo, second to HDD and top 1 one to CD-ROM drive. Just connect and dun wrry m sure it will work....so............:))

Power not up


1) Please make sure that the HDD IDE cable is plugged in properly on both ends. It is a 40 pin female cord which should be seated on IDE channel 1 on the motherboard.
2) Make sure that all the CD/DVD drives are on IDE 2 or on SATA
3) Make sure taht the Jumper setting on the back of the HDD is set to MASTER
4) Login to bios and make see if you can find the HDD from the IDE drives menu. I am sure you will. From Boot menu select the NATIVE mode that will activate both the SATA and the IDE channels. Select HDD as second boot device.
