What motherboard do you have?

Some motherboards have the capacity to handle more than 4 ide devices
through this manner.

are listed in Device Manager.

Also listed are SIS PCI IDE Controller and Standard Dual Channel PC
IDE Controller

I've googled this and I can't see two many others with the sam
set-up.

I've been having problem with audio clicks and pops on video captur
and I'm grasping at straws here.

If this could be part of the problem, I'd like to get it sorted out

If you don't want all the motherboard ide channels enabled, disable them in
your bios.

I think you misread my post.
Listed under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers in Device Manager
Primary IDE Channel
Primary IDE Channel
Secondary IDE Channel
Secondary IDE Channel
SIS 5513 IDE UDMA Controller
Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller

I don't know why there's two of each channel listed, and I'm wonderin
if that could be creating some sort of conflict

On 2/2/2006, tigger managed to type:

What I have done in the above case is to go to Safe Mode, and in Device
manager, 'Remove' the duplicated channels. Remove all of them, so that
there are none left (no primaries, no secondaries, to be 100%
explicit!).

On rebooting to normal mode, the correct drivers are automatically
reinstalled and all is good.

If there are supposed to be two each, you will again see two each.

I wouldn't blame you if you chose not to try this, but it has worked
for me.
