StarTech PATA2SATA3 overview

  • 1Description

The black Bi-Directional SATA/IDE Adapter Converter from StarTech lets you connect a serial ATA drive to a legacy IDE port, or an IDE drive to a SATA motherboard port. It is a cost-effective solution for upgrading existing IDE systems to support SATA hard drives or optical drives. The SATA/IDE adapter eliminates the expense of having to purchase a controller card, while saving the expansion slot that would be required for card installation. In addition to the SATA hard drive installation, the adapter can be reversed in order to connect older IDE drives to a newer SATA-enabled motherboard, thus making it easy to retrieve old files from a previous system.

    StarTech PATA2SATA3 reviews

    Bi-Directional SATA/IDE Adapter Converter (Black) is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not work; I think IDE too old I'm not really sure how to rate this. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me, but I don't know if that's due to the converter or due to my new motherboard. Perhaps there is some method that would get it to work fine, but there are not really any instructions. My guess is that IDE is simply too old now to be used with a new system, even with a converter.
