Basically I am wondering if there is a hardware adapter available that will allow me to install a SATA drive into a laptop that. is set up for IDE.
I have a Dell 1150, that has an adapater (feed thru) that is required to install standard IDE drives. So the question, is there and adapter to fit SATA drive to match up to the 40 pin IDE connector inside the laptop. I'm not really concerned about performance..I just don't want to buy another IDE hard drive is I can use one of my spare SATA drives.
