Could anyone please advise me? My PC has 8 SATA power cables and 6 SATA data ports, meaning I can hook up a maximum of 6 SATA drives. Is there any way to increase this? Ideally I'd like to have about 14 or more? Just to explain the reason why I want to do this... I want to rip my entire CD collection. I've been putting this off as I have about 2,000 disks, so ripping them one at a time would take me weeks of solid work. Instead of doing it that way, I figured that I could buy a whole bunch of second-hand laptop CD drives, then rip like 10 at a time, with the drives hanging loosely out of my machine, using multiple instances of the ripping program EAC. Drive speed and ripping speed doesn't really matter, because changing and processing 10 disks at a time is FAR less hassle (only about 200 sessions in total). My PSU is the Corsair VX450W and my MB is the ASUS P7P55D (it's been a while since I built my PC, but it still works fine for me). My MB also has an eSATA port - I don't know much about this port, but I read somewhere that it "supports port multiplier up to four devices" allowing four devices to be added? Is this true? If so, how could I do this? Can anyone see any problems with my plan? Also, if there is a way to hook up like a dozen CD drives, could all these drives damage my hardware somehow, or screw up my system? Is there a limit to how much you can add? (I know there's a limit to drive letters but I shouldn't need 26.) It will only be a temporary setup, but still, I don't want to damage anything.
