SATA to PATA Converting





internetjobs
i am looking for SATA to PATA converter for the data cables. i have a pc with PATA supported board. i recently bought a SATA DVD writer. i come to know that i will not support. Can any one tell me this PATA to SATA converting cable is available in the market or not?

They are easily available, and cheap!

This is just a sample, and a pretty expensive one at that, if you look you can probably find cheaper ones.
*edit* Oh, wait... You need to adapt to the other direction, don't you?
Not finding anything for that, except the possibility of getting a SATA controller card.

You would probably be better getting a cheap PCI SATA card. You can then connect the DVD drive directly to this. At least this way the DVD drive will be connected to the correct interface and be able to transfer data at the maximum speed, it should also overcome any compatibility issues.
