Imagine someone living under a rock on Mars for the past 10 years,well that be me.
My apology in advance if this has already bin done,but my eyes are to blurred to search further.
Prob:Thought I'd fix my slow noisey HD.Purchased a SATA HD.
Ok,wrong one,I hve ide connections........... (can't return sata)
Question: Can I just buy a sata to ide converter,then connect the sata to slave my ide? Then transfer my stuff to the sata then replace the old ide with the new sata?
Or do I just count my losses and buy another ide HD.
I have engineering background but just starting to play with computer internals.
