    Quote taken completely out of context there Steve!

    I did go on to say it is limiting and restrictive, and stand by that.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    I have a Hackintosh at the moment, but it doesn't like some of the hardware I have. For one, it doesn't support IDE/ATAPI optical drives (CD/DVD/BluRay) but all my SATA ports are used up with hard drives!
    Any ideas of a way around this?

    SATA PCI card? Or an SATA splitter which can convert one SATA port into 2.

    My SATA card is currently in my other PC (a Windows 2000 file server) which is quite old and doesn't have SATA ports. As for SATA splitter, hmmmmm, didn't know they existed!?!

    Their proper name is port multipliers and they work more like a network hub, taking the connection from the SATA motherboard/IO card connection into the multiplier on one side, and then offering up to 5 ports at the other side to connect SATA devices to.

    One such example is here

    Nice

    I may have to 'invest' in a couple of those (always handy to have a spare)
