  1. i found an external CD/RW at a garage sale and tore it apart and it turns out that it is just an ide drive. i plugged an untested hd into the converter and my pc recognized hardware but it didnt work.
    is the harddrive busted or is it because the converter will only work for the included CD/RW?
