Only transfers at USB 1.0 08/20/2008
This review is from: Rosewill RC-204 IDE to SATA Mini Vertical Bridge (for IDE device)
Transparent to OS, meaning it runs fine, no setup issues.
Only transfers at USB 1.0 rates (which is half the speed of USB2).
It's a well designed adapter. Just stick the pin-side into your IDE hard drive. Then plug the USB cable and power into the exposed side of the card. No settings. Nothing to tinker with. Windows XP ran it immediately. But, I found it relatively slow to transfer large files onto the drive, since the card runs at USB version 1.0, which is half the speed of my 3gb/sec hard drive.
