The install was simple (assuming you know how to plug in a hard drive in the first place) and I have had no issues with this product since I purchased it about a month ago. I will certainly update my review if I have any trouble with it in the future. It's a nice change to be able to install a piece of hardware and not have to worry about any software. Don't forget to set the hard drive jumper on the circuit board to Master or Slave depending on your intended use. They address this in the included install instructions. I highly recommend this product to anyone with a SATA hard drive they need connected to their motherboard with only IDE connector cables available.

Style Name: IDE to SATA Verified Purchase
In case you're wondering, the adapter transfers power to the SATA drive unit by it's included adapter cable from molex 4-pin to floppy style jack on the adapter. Adapter then perfectly aligns to the HDD SATA data & power female jack on the drive.

Since my new computer runs a DVD-style optical drive, and the one I was building has been somewhat dependant upon driver downloads and such from the newer device, I wanted the very newest DVD compatible interface for my little XP engine. When my DVD writer arrived, I was dismayed to see SATA only interface.

My mainboard supports multiple drives, but only IDE/PATA plug-ins are standard. Although I've used a new old-style motherboard for the build up, my previous hard drives and optical drives were routed/jumped with a `cable-select' setting enabled on each drive. That configuration isn't supported for the StarTech device. The adapter jumpers must be set for either of two choices, `slave'
or `master'.

If you're unaware of the significance of the jumpers, by all means google the term `cable-select', as it so happens that there's really no difference of appearance between standard IDE cables and the cable select version, but, you'll be missing a connection if you unwittingly substitute one for the other.

Proximal spacing of the devices from the mother board should conform to a pattern of `base' plug-in at one end, with slave device on the center or internal connector, and master device at the external or outer extremity of the ribbon cable. If the jumpers and the devices are arranged with this configuration, then your IDE processing software driver should perceive that `all-is-well', as configured and no device conflicts should ensue.

Style Name: IDE to SATA Verified Purchase
I recently bought a new internal 1.5TB drive but neglected to realize that it was SATA rather than IDE/ATA. At first I thought I was never going to use the drive until I found this adapter.

The installation couldn't be easier: It simply attaches as a daughtercard to the SATA port on the drive. The daughtercard features a male IDE connector and a power cable port along with a power cable. The card also has a Master/Slave jumper which makes it easy to replace an existing IDE slave drive with an SATA drive configured as a slave on the same IDE cable.

The card doesn't require any drivers. My SATA drive was recognized automatically by the BIOS and XP-Pro. I was able to easily initialize and partition the drive using XP-Pro's disk managment tools.

For anyone who has an IDE/ATA-based system and wants to check out the higher-capacity SATA drives this little card is a tiny investment which works wonders.

Style Name: IDE to SATA Verified Purchase
At least for me this purchase couldn't have worked out better.

I had rescued a 1.5 Terabyte SATA drive from a failed Seagate External FreeAgent enclosure (as usual it wasn't the drive itself) but had no place to use the 1.5 Terabyte SATA, so it just sat on my desk.

But by spending about $20 I was able to replace an old 160 Gigabyte IDE (PATA) drive in my Ubuntu file server with the salvaged 1.5 Terabyte drive. I split it into two 700+ Gig partitions and I'm now drowning in free space.

In this economy it's great being able to spend just a little and get a big result.

Style Name: IDE to SATA Verified Purchase
I purchased the StarTech IDE to SATA adapter to replace my backup 80gb internal hard drive on my relatively old Dell 3000 with a 1TB drive. I ordered the SATA Serial ATA Hard Drive/CD/DVD-ROM to PATA/IDE Interface Convert Adapter, also from Amazon at the same time. The latter converter was only $1.21, and I'd read a number of reviews from others for whom one adapter or another worked (or didn't). The StarTech product cost about 10 times what the other adapter did, but the bottom line is that it worked for me, while the other connector didn't. When I hooked up the drive via the cheaper connector, my computer wasn't able to find the drive. The StarTech board comes with jumpers, allowing you to set it for Master, Slave or Cable Select settings. I set the jumpers (CS), plugged in the hard drive, and the computer read the drive with no problem.

I bought this adapter to install a 500-Gig SATA drive in a TiVo Series 2, which only has a PATA bus. It works great, and I'm very happy with the device itself.

I only gave it four stars though, due to the power connector - it comes with a 4-pin "floppy drive" connector, rather than a standard PATA molex, and a floppy-to-molex adapter cable.

That alone wouldn't be enough to lose a star, but it is a very low quality adapter cable, extremely difficult to plug in to the power cable without the pins popping out of the molex connector, hence the 4-star rating.
