Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
Need a Diagram for a ide sata converter need to no what plugs from ide motherboard plug into my sata hard drive and do I need a jumper on sata hard drive and what setting would the jumper go on
A sata drive doesn't need jumpers. The jumpers were only required when 2 drives used the same cable.

I'm sorry, but I couldn't wade through this bunch responses, so I'm going to give you my own.
You have 2 sata drives installed, already, so you cannot add an additional one w/o a bunch of wonky adapters, so use the IDE channel. You say you have an IDE rom drive. Well, there's a reason there are 3 connections on an IDE cable. One side goes into the motherboard, the other 2 into your drives. The motherboard side is the one furthest away from the center connector. I assume you have the primary connector connected to your rom drive. the 2ndary one would be on your hdd. Why people asked you why you're doing this is beyond me. It works, you'll have an extra drive, your preference. Whatever.
Let me know if you have any more inquiries.
To answer your questions from your original post directly, the other 'ide' channel is specifically for a floppy disk You CANNOT connect an IDE cable to it. And yes, you can connect an hdd to the slave port on the ide cable.

Dell Dimension 3000 accepts IDE hard drive. Any modern IDE drive should be fine
Check out Dell Dimension 3000 Service Manual for spec and how to remove and install parts.

Yes, I'm afraid it's some form of difficulty in sending files from the SATA data-stream to the IDE ATA drive. It may be motherboard-specific, I don't really know. However attempting to send data between SATA and ATA drives is as I described above. Sending an 18-wheeler down a two-way highway and having the truck make a U-turn to reach the opposite drive.
Sorry I can't confirm if it's motherboard specific, I'm limited in that field of knowledge.

If you have enough room for the converter and power adapter you should be fine. Note that the speed of the drive will be reduced to that of the IDE converter which will be slower than a direct SATA interface.
