Question about Intel Motherboard
IDE devices have different "data" and "power" connectors than SATA drives.
So, you need a motherboard with IDE connectors, if you wish to connect an IDE disk-drive (or CD/DVD), and you need a motherboard with SATA connectors, if you wish to connect a SATA device.
Similarly, the connectors on the power-supply must be compatible with the sockets on the disk-drive (or CD/DVD) drives, so that the devices can get power.
You could possibly purchase a short IDE-to-SATA power-adapter, if you have a SATA device, but there are no SATA power-connectors on your power-supply.
