IDE / ATA
Don’t leave your IDE hard drive or disk drive out of a new build just because your computer’s motherboard lacks their native support. Instead, install some of Connectivity Center’s power-packed IDE/ATA hard drive cables and converters.
Saving and re-using parts and installing them in a new build or existing machine is a great way to get your money's worth from the computer components in which you’ve already invested. One of the most common parts to get left out of the salvage pile are IDE drives. While the SATA interface is faster and more efficient, IDE drives still make great archives for data you rarely access. Additionally, the IDE format is likely to outlast that used hard disk or disk drive you may have been considering instead.
Whether you need a bit more reach to connect your drive to your motherboard or you require an IDE to SATA cable to make up for the lack of an IDE port on your mainboard, you'll find the ideal solution to your data transfer needs in Connectivity Center’s inventory. You’ll also find a solution here if you need to go SATA to IDE for your setup.
