So far I have the hard drive connected via the IDE connector, however, the hard drive is just laying in the computer case. As the spacing between the IDE connector and where the hard drive should go according to the case is too far apart. I have also sacrificed one of my CD drives to do this. Is there anyway around that, or am I stuck with this? This may be trying to compare apples to oranges, but is there an adapter that will allow me to hook up my hard drive through one of the SATA interfaces on the motherboard even though the connector on the hard drive is an IDE connector?
Edit: I found this
and am about 100% certain that it will work for what I need that way I can use my other CD drive. I'd just like a second opinion. Thanks.
