You can get IDE PCIE cards that will do what you ask. Also you can get an IDE to USB adapter. Why do you want to do this? Is it just to get your data off of it?

✔ Best Answer

If you have an open PCI slot on your motherboard and a drive bay then you can buy an IDE controller card and connect the IDE hard drive that way. More reliable than adapters.

See the link below.

Be sure you buy the correct type of card. PCI and PCI express are not the same.
