Description

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.

StarTech Advantage

  • A single, versatile adapter can be used to connect an IDE device to a SATA motherboard or vice-versa without any drivers or software installation
  • Supports not only hard drives, but CD/DVD optical drives as well
  • Backed by a StarTech.com 1 year warranty and free lifetime technical support

Doesn't support IDE Master/Slave/Cable Select
Reviewed by . Review Posted 18/05/2010
2 5

Although the bumf, the installation guide, the datasheet, and the startech website all state that it supports M/S/CS, and there are even jumpers on the device to configure it, it actually connects directly to the IDE port on the motherboard and therefore only allows a single IDE device per channel. Startech support told me that whilst the jumpers are on the device, they don't do anything - it's a generic "package" used for other products. It took a lot of effort to provide that I can't use it for what I want - an IDE DVD-ROM as a master and a SATA HD as a slave (via something like this device) on the same IDE channel. The docs should say you can only have one device per channel, and the jumpers shouldn't be anywhere on it! If anyone knows different to what startech support have said, please add a review and let me know, 'cos otherwise I'm going to have to buy another device.
