This review is from: Rosewill RC-204 IDE to SATA Mini Vertical Bridge (for IDE device)
Pros: Worked out of the box. I bought this to backup files from my stack of retired IDE drives and then do a disk wipe.
My BIOS remains in AHCI mode and I am running the overly maligned VISTA (x86) OS.
I've done 5 drives so far of all different sizes and manufacturer making sure that they are jumpered to MASTER.
The instructions seem to infer that the adapted drive would not be hot swappable. It is hot swappable for me, just make sure that everything is powered on when removing or inserting the SATA plug.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
