Default ATA-100 adapter

Hey guys, maybe I'm just not searching for this the right way or maybe there is no such thing... I don't know, but what I would like to get would be an adapter that I can plug my ata-100 hard drive from my old laptop into that can be plugged into one of my sata ports on my desktop.

Thanks

Something like this should work, but it's probably a little pricey for what it is. Also the reviews aren't very good...
Newegg.com - SABRENT SBT-STDB IDE Ultra ATA-100/133 to SATA Port Mini Converter - Adapters & Gender Changers

Anyway, should give you a general idea for what you should be looking for.

I've used something similar to this and it worked fairly well:

drivewire - universal hard drive adapter

Here's a bunch at CompUSA:

Thanks. Now I at least know what I'm looking for. That one looks to be what I would need to plug a sata HD into my ATA-100 laptop, but I would like to plug my ATA-100 HD into my sata desktop. (The ATA has the male end on that adapter and the adapter needs to be female since my HD has the pins sticking out of it...)

I'm pretty sure this would be the one I need: Newegg.com - Rosewill RC-204 IDE to SATA Mini Vertical Bridge (for IDE device) - Adapters & Gender Changers
See anything wrong with it? I'm going to do a bit of shopping and see if there is anything else I need to order and probably put an order in in an hour or so.

Thanks synergy - just saw your post.

What do you guys think would be better? One of the USB ones like this CompUSA.com | CB-ISATAU2 | Vantec USB to SATA/IDE Adapter or one of the sata ones like I had in my previous post. Speed seems to be the biggest drawback from the reviews I have seen.

It depends on if you want to try and boot to the drive or not. If you're just wanting to pull some information from the drive then the USB adapter will work fine. But if you want to use the drive for an operating system or something within the desktop then you'd be better with the Rosewill.

I won't be booting from it, but if the rosewill would be better and cost the same, I will go with that since I have a huge tower and have the space for it anyway.
