Optical Drives.

Recommended Posts

Is it OK to have 3 optical drives installed in a computer?

I already have a CD re-writer and DVD drive installed, and I have a spare drive bay.

My youngest son wants me to buy a DVD re-writer this weekend, but I am not sure whether I can have all 3 installed or whether I need to lose the CD re-writer.

Thought I was in the wrong thread there for a moment and you were referring to Alcoholics Anonymous.

Seriously though, when I have installed a second drive in a computer that only had one drive originally, there is always a spare set of leads that piggy back off the first drive.

Obviously these leads are now used on the second drive, would it just be a case of buying compatible leads that plug on to the motherboard for the third drive?, or perhaps they piggy back off the second drive somehow.
