Bi-directional adapter converts IDE to SATA or SATA to IDE. The PATA2SATA3 is a bi-directional SATA IDE adapter/converter that lets you connect a Serial ATA drive to a legacy IDE port, or an IDE drive to a SATA motherboard port.

A cost-effective solution for upgrading existing IDE systems to support SATA hard drives or optical drives, the SATA/IDE adapter eliminates the expense of having to purchase a controller card while saving the expansion slot that would be required for card installation.

In addition to SATA hard drive installation, the adapter can be reversed in order to connect older IDE drives to a newer SATA-enabled motherboard, making it easy to retrieve old files from a previous system.

Product Reviews
StarTech.com Bi-Directional SATA IDE Adapter Converter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only one that works with newer computers. Only adapter we found that works with newer model computers. We use it in a classroom environment with removable IDE drives and it works perfectly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this adapter to retrieve files from an IDE disk drive that was in an older computer that failed. Not having a system with IDE interface to connect the drive to, I needed the adapter to connect to a system with a SATA drive interface. The adapter worked perfectly.If the system that you intend to use this adapter in does not have a LP4 Molex 4 pin power connector for the IDE drive, you will need a SATA to LP4 Power Cable Adapter - F/M, which is StarTech product ID LP4SATAFM6IN.
