Well after 4 years with this HDD and never having to reload Windows due to using FD-ISR imaging program I finally have to bite the bullet. I have an older AMD Athlon processor with a MOBO that uses IDE HDDs. My question is, is there a PCI adapter that can adapt SATA HDDs to use on an IDE MOBO so I don't have to buy a new drive when I build a new system (someday)? I found a 500Gb IDE HDD on Newegg for about $80.00, but some of the SATA drives are cheaper these days. I would appreciate any advice.
