|As I have just bought an Intel(R) Desktop Board DX58SO I have as yet not got round to swapping all my drives over yet. As you can see though 2 of my drives are IDE. I have bought adapters which plug into the long slot on the drives and then enables me to attach a SATA cable. Now see coment mabe but Intel below. Is this true have I wasted my money?|
The usage of Serial ATA to IDE adapters is not recommended in any of our Desktop Boards, IDE drives might not work correctly with that configuration.
Please be aware that the IDE port is a 40-pin connector, and the floppy port is a 34-pin plug, therefore the connections are not compatible with each other.
