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.

Duel boot system first xp then vista


Wow....

First I would check the BIOS settings. Make sure that the slave and master jumpers are correct on the drives.

Wouldn't it be easier to make one drive Windows XP on one drive while running Vista on the other?

It would make things easier to troubleshoot.

Connecting an IDE HDD to a SATA port using an IDE to SATA converter


Not complete product...need to buy additional adapter for IDE to SATA power source.
IDE drive will have to have the power source hooked up as well as the adaptor hooked up.
Installing the adaptor only will not work. Your computer should have the 4 pin plug for the power to the IDE drive, other wise you will have to buy another adaptor.

IDE to SATA Adapter


Hi, could it be that you have an adapter that works one way only - IDE to SATA - it converts an IDE drive to SATA host port and therefore will not work in your motherboard. What you probably should get is Sata Drive to IDE connector. You might want to have a look @ http://www.satacables.com/html/sata-acessories.html./ Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck.
