dvd/cd rom question...

  1. Right now i have 2 sata hdd's (RAID-0) with all together 4 available sata ports on my mobo. I also have a IDE CDRW drive and an IDE DVDRW drive... lately my DVDRW drive has been leading me to believe its dying so i found a replacement, but its SATA format. Now my question is this... if i get this drive and have 1 DVDRW SATA drive and a CDRW IDE drive, is that going to cause any issues or will it still boot like normal and act the same? Basically I've never mixed the 2 together before and im just looking for any insight or help on this issue. Thanks

    Theoretically it should work fine.

    Not from me. If you have a look at my profile you will see i use 1 sata and 2 ata hard drives with absolutely no problems at all, but i have never tried a sata dvd rom.
