hi,
you may connect one of the hard disk as slave to the other one.
you will have to set the jumper found the hard disk to the slave mode.
see this if your hard disk is a seagate:

thus the dvd writer will be free.
connect the hard disk containing windows as the master.

Did you not read the question?


It was NOT asking how to connect 2 HDDs it was asking about one HDD & a DVD drive.

Im trying to do the same thing and was looking for some useful info before attemting it.

Keep looking I suposse.
