SATA to IDE: What does it do?
to IDE adapter converts your IDE drive interface into a SATA drive
interface. The only problem with this conversion is that it slows down
your SATA drive to IDE speeds (If speed is an issue, you may want to
just install a Serial
ATA controller card). If you have a laptop, then use a PCMCIA
SATA card. We have had many customers ask us if it will convert
SATA drives into IDE. It will not do that conversion.
