Works great in Windows and Linux 06/01/2013
This review is from: Rosewill RC-204 IDE to SATA Mini Vertical Bridge (for IDE device)
When I rebuilt my computer using a motherboard that had on PATA or floppy connectors, I was able to use my original IDE DVD writer with no noticeable change in performance. I am still using it and have been for six months. Saved having to purchase a serial ata DVD writer. It is a good product and doesn't stick out the rear of the drive too much, as some may do.
No cons on the product. Had to download open source DVD burning program for Windows XP. Linux has its own burning programs, and Windows 8 seemed to work OK also.
I will probably keep using it until the DVD writer wears out.
