    Sata drives are designed so that they can be inserted into a backplane or external drive case, so the adapter should fit.

    Yep I think that should do nicely, it's an IDE to Sata adaptor plate, its designed to be fitted into a removable drive bay by the look of it, it wont do you much good just hanging off the back of the drive, mind you if the vibration is kept to a minimum it may be OK

    But your right, I can find loads of cables and adaptors for letting you use an IDE on a SATA board, but not a SATA drive on an IDE socket, anyone fancy taking a look ???

    i guess i'll try to look lil bit further for a Sata to IDE interface convertor.
    if i cant find i guess i'll just save up for a new mother board.
