This SATA adapter provides a single chip solution for bridging between ATA controllers and SATA device. With the capability to translate SATA mass storage commands to ATA/ATAPI communication protocol you can easily use all types of Serial ATA Devices such as HDD, DVD-RW, CD-ROM, CD-RW with your existing ATA controller without the added expense of purchasing a SATA host controller.
This review is from: CABLES UNLIMITED FLT-7100 Parallel ATA to Serial ATA Drive Converter
Pros: Works great. It seems to be made very well. Plugged it in and the drive was recognized without issues. Ran Seagate Tools long and short tests and passed both. No errors in the event log either. It gave my aging IDE motherboard some new life.
Cons: -It's a little bit pricey compared to other brands.
Other Thoughts: IMPORTANT: Make sure this is what you need! This is to use a SATA DRIVE with a IDE MOTHERBOARD. This will NOT work for the other way around. The FLT-7000 does that.
