Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
What type of connection does your optical drive have? If it is a SATA drive, use one of the four SATA ports.
If you have an IDE drive, this motherboard doesn't have an IDE connection on board. If you want to use this drive, you need an IDE to SATA converter, for example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812232004&cm_re=ide_to_sata_converter-_-12-232-004-_-Product . This is for internal use. You could also get a PCI or PCIe IDE controller. Some PCIe examples are here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=ide+pci+express . These will work if you still have one of the PCIe slots available. (Some video cards may block the slots.)
There are also USB to IDE dongles or 5.25" enclosures that will work (best for non-slim optical drives).
I hope this helps.
