It took me a little while to figure out how these work.

Put a piece of electrical tape on the back so the solder joints don't touch the metal on the drive.

I purchased two of these boards. I hooked them both up and powered up.

I had the same problem as noted in one of the other posts here...smoke started coming from the case. I removed the power cable and checked the inside of the case. Sure enough, the black power lead to one of the boards had melted. When I pulled the board and examined it the chip on the board was discolored. The second board was fine and worked perfectly with no special settings of the drive jumper (mine was set to cable select).

It looks like the board quality is hit and miss, so be aware.

Follow-up...I e-mailed the vendor to inform them of the problem. It is then that I noticed something about the power cable that was included with the product. The red wire was reversed on the large connector - the black wire was on the outside of the connector rather than the red wire. This basically routes the hot red wire from the power supply to what should be the "black connection" on the board. All other power cables in my computer - as well as the power cable provided with the 'good' board - have the red wire on the outside of both the small and large connector. I'm now thinking the failure is caused by the reversed wire.

This device mounts on the back of your PATA hard drive and connects to the motherboard with a SATA connection. There is no documentation worth mentioning included, but it does work and it is cheap. I just built a new computer whose motherboard lacks any PATA connection and I wanted to re-use one of my old PATA drives (a relatively new 500GB Western Digital Caviar Blue) as a secondary drive. I didn't try making it my boot device and I'm not sure that would work; besides, it is probably slower than the normal SATA drives. One important feature for me was that it only sticks out less than an inch from the back of the hard drive, where my case doesn't have much space. I deducted one star for lack of documention, a potential shorting problem, and a keying issue with the PATA connector (see my hints below). As a retired computer design engineer I was able to get this device to work, but it it far less than "idiot proof".

Here are some hints to get it to work for you:

1. Watch out that the back of this device does not contact the metal housing of the hard drive. I put electrical tape on the hard drive to prevent shorting. I also trimmed some of the longer leads sticking through the board to get as much clearance as possible.
2. The PATA connector can be installed upside down -- check the notch (key) orientation on the two mating pieces.
3. Make sure the connector is centered on ALL of the pins on the hard drive. (At first I plugged it in offset by a pair of pins. It didn't work that way.) The fact that the connector connection key doesn't really work indicates to me that the PATA connector on the device wasn't really intended for this application (poor design choice).
4. Since there are active components on the device, it needs its own power connection. (In addition to power to the PATA drive).
5. Based on other reviews, I set my PATA hard drive jumper in the master position, and it worked. (I didn't try any other setting.)

I installed the IDE converter and plugged in the included power adapter for the converter, then plugged in the power supply into the DVD ROM. When I turned on the computer, I smelled smoke, so I opened the computer hood, to have billows of smoke gush out at me. I quickly unplugged the computer, and took a look; the black wire on the power adapter was burnt to a crisp. Luckily, I unplugged the computer before any damage was done to any other component!

Needless to say, I sent an email to the seller (importer520) requesting an immediate refund. I'll post an update with his response.

EDIT: The seller importer520 refunded the shipping and handling and purchase price, so I'm happy with them.

I got this to use an old DVD/CD-RW drive on a new motherboard with only SATA. The quality of the adapter is not very good but it was cheap.

To use the Drive must be set to Master(primary), and SATA BIOS must be set to IDE mod (will not work in AHCI mode)

it also has some other quarks but Okay.

Update.
I have got another one but this time it did not work at all out of the box, I was able to fix the nasty solder job on it, the board had multiple solder bribes on it.

QC past sticker was covering some bad solder work what a joke.

Actually a dual-mode controller! Says it on the packaging, you can use it as a SATA to IDE converter too. I used it to retrofit an IDE hard drive into a SATA Dell and transfer speeds are unhampered by the converter. The drive with the converter has a 5.9 score in WEI which is pretty good for a hard drive. I am confident the converter isn't introducing any bottlenecks or slowing down anything, so I give it a full 5 stars. I ordered 3 and none of them have the reversed wire problem. Maybe I just got a good batch :)

It took me a little while to figure out how these work. I have 2 hard drives and a DVD burner. The hard drives jumpers had to be set to cable select for them to work. I have not been able to get the DVD burner to work.

I'm putting together a Mini-ITX system and thought I would save a few bucks and reuse one of my spare hard drives I have laying around. Unfortunately they are all IDE and the motherboard I got only has SATA connections. I snagged one of these figuring it would be a quick and easy solution to my dilemma.

When I first removed the board from the package, I immediately noticed it had discoloration and burn marks around several of the leads. As I see it was now mentioned in other reviews, there is no insulation on the back of the board and if it makes contact with the haddrive casing, it can cause a short. This just shows extremely poor design, as this is meant to rest nearly against the drive casing in order to use it! It seems as though this happened to someone who then returned it and it was repackages and shipped to me. Surprisingly the device powered on by the indicator light, so perhaps they tested it, but I wouldnt count on it. Just make sure to put electrical tape on any part of the drive that may contact the board!!!

The first 2 drives I had did not work with this device, though they were loose drives and I did not test them prior to using the device so I cannot condemn it for that. Since the Mini ITX system was to replace my current HTPC, I decided to pull the IDE drive from that old computer and attempted to use it. With the device in place, the computer recognized this hard-drive and I began installing Windows. Eventually the installation stopped and gave me the error "Could not copy installation files" and prompted me to restart. When it restarted, the drive was no longer being recognized! I rebooted 4 or 5 times before the bios recognized the drive again, at which point I restarted the Windows installation.
