Connect your SATA drive to an IDE motherboard. This IDE/ATAPI to SATA adapter lets you connect a SATA drive to a motherboard IDE/ATA 33/66/100/133 port. The IDE/SATA adapter offers a cost-effective solution for bridging the gap between a newer SATA drive and older motherboard designs, allowing you to connect newer SATA drives to an older IDE motherboard port and in turn eliminating the need to upgrade the motherboard for the sake of compatibility with the drives.

Saving time and hassle, the IDE to SATA adapter can be connected through simple plug and play installation.

5* Boot to SATA from old drive
Reviewed by Robert Govier on 02/04/2009
I have an old Shuttle SN41G2 with only IDE connections, which I wanted to upgrade with a big hard drive. I didn't want to spend my money on a drive I couldn't transfer to a new computer in the future, so I purchased a SATA drive from BT and a Pata to Sata cheap from ebay. After getting two adapters DOA from Hong Kong I decided to spend a bit more on this item from BT. This was the right move! The adapter allows me to boot into Windows XP from the SATA drive with no additional drivers required. I haven't noticed any speed issues, and the adapter is small enough to fit inside even the cramped shuttle case. My only criticism... £20 seems high but I guess that comes with peace of mind from buying from a UK retailer with a good reputation!
2* Possible problems with UDMA modes
Reviewed by Gordon Hathaway on 23/12/2009
This device is well made and easy to fit. It uses the Marvell chip. However in my case using it to connect a Pioneer BluRay writer BDR-203 to a Gigabyte GA-8ITXR motherboard none of the UDMA modes worked without serious errors. All was OK in PIO Mode 4 but then data rate and writing was incredibly slow. If like me you are unlucky and this adaptor does not work in your system then you should try an adaptor using the JMicron chip, such as the ST Labs type A05HL which works perfectly in my system. Just search for "SATA to ATA convertor" and A05HL. The only disadvantage of this device is that the IDE cable must be twisted as the connector is the wrong way round compared to all Hard Disks and CD-ROM drives I have seen!
