Installing a IDE to SATA converter adapter

I bought a converter to be able to download Ghost 14 backup of my c drive on my Vista SATA computer to an IDE hard drive to use on another older computer. The adapter has 2 cables - one for data to plug into the Sata machine mother board and a power cable with only 2 wires to plug into a spare female power connecter in the computer. Do I need to also plug the IDE hard drive into a spare female power connector on the Sata machine?

I tried to use the converter on a 80Gb IDE hard drive but don't know how to set the master/slave jumper. I couldn't find the IDE drive in my BIOS. No instructions came with the converter and I would appreciate some help!
Regards, Jack

    Same problem, need help too! I do know that you have to connect power directly to the IDE hard drive as well, so there will be 3 cables total. The power plug on the converter is to power the converter itself. I plug everything in just right but the new computer still wont recognize the old hard drive, HELP!

RUNNING A SATA HDD ON AN IDE ONLY MOTHERBOARD


If I am not completely mistaken you have to reinstall the OS on the SATA drive on IDE. That is because the first installation was configured for connection on a SATA /PCI then now on the SATA/IDE port converter.

Ide to usb connector sata cable attachment


The connection should be simple where you match the connections. The long connection is for the power and the short is for data. You can't really mess up the connection but be carefull when trying to connect and not to force the connections.

Try to delete the item with the yellow ! in the device manager and reboot the system.
