View Full Version : Quicksilver IDE PCI Card?

Aug 29, 2008, 08:15 AM
I have an M8439 800/1.5/160/DVDRW 10.3.7 / 9.1 classic. I want to run Digidesign Pro Tools v5.1, which requires OS9 and an IDE HD to record to. I have purchased a WD Caviar SE - EIDE HD Question: can I just run it inline with the operating (boot) HD off the ATA bus, or do I need to get an IDE PCI adapter card? Thanx in advance.

Plug & play, no extra you will pay......

for an ide controller card, that is :p

The QS's ('02 version & later) motherboard controller supports drives over 128GB nottaproblemo. The 1st model did NOT :(

Yea, mine is a QS 2001, and as I understand, will not recognize more than 128 GB of the 160 GB WD Caviar HD. Unless I go with the card. 128 GB is plenty for what I'm doing, so I'll just plug and play. Thanx for the info.
