IDE / ATA
Cannibalizing 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 you invest in. 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. And the IDE format is likely to outlast that used hard disk or disk drive you're considering.
Whether you need a bit more reach to connect your drive to your motherboard or you require a IDE to SATA cable to make up for the lack of an IDE port on your mainboard, you'll find the solution to your data transfer needs in our inventory. And of course, you’ll find the solution here if you need to go SATA to IDE for your setup.
