    So, I recently went out, and bought a new 120GB Harddrive. The mistake I made was that it is a SATA, whereas my MB only supports IDE (complete n00b moment).

    I can't return the HD, because I bought it from a computer show. I know there must be ways for me to use this... I know there are ATA controller cards, and do cables like "ata-to-ide" exist?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

    I don't think so.

    It's a Barracuda 120GB @7200rpm SATA
    If all else fails, I'll make a trade.

    Correct.
    I've never seen such a thing, but then again, I've never looked, either.

    BTW, I have a Western Digital 160GB, 7200rpm w/ 8Mb cache.

    And my board supports SATA.

    Oh well.

    So much for the "Infested Cats and Clocker Send Each Other Things" thread.

    i think adaptec supports SATA Adapter cards (pci slot obviously)

    btw, ide is also known as PATA so pleez when ur referring to ur "ATA" hdd, refer to it as SATA
