This is one of the most awesome computer products I have ran across yet! I just happened to buy a motherboard that had only 1 IDE controller and 8 SATA controllers! All of the M/B's that I had used in the past had 2 IDE controllers, but as you know IDE drives are gradually fading away. I did not want to invest in new SATA hard drives yet and besides I had a lot of important data on them that I didn't want to fool with tranferring. Well, with this nifty device, you simply plug it into the back of the IDE HD, plug a SATA cable into the back of it, plug the cable into the M/B and WaaLa! You have converted the old drive to SATA! The only drawback is you must have floppy drive power connectors available. I solved this problem by splicing floppy drive power connectors into an available IDE power connector. These cheap adapters saved me lots of money and trouble! No software needed!
