Hi, I'm hoping someone can help, I'm a bit of a newbie, although its not quite as easy peasy as the title of the thread may suggest!
Basically, I built my computer a year or so ago using an NF7-S Ausus Motherboard. This kit included a dinky gadget called a SERILLEL2 which enabled me to 'upgrade' my Diamond Maxtor hard drive to sata compatibility (apparently).
I'd now like to add another hard drive, for backup and a memory paging file and was thinking of buying an actual SATA drive rather than an IDE. Is it going to be possible for me to connect this to the IDE (acting as a SATA)? I'm not sure if the two can connect. Also if they can, is it possible for the SATA to be a slave with the IDE still as master, or is the master/slave not applicable with SATA drives?
I think the main reason I'm confused is because the handy SERILLEL2 muddles the two drive types and now Im not sure if my idea will work.
Hope this makes sense to someone! Any help gratefully received.
