Default Some help with copying PATA to SATA hard drives

First off hi all new here.
Trying to copying everything off a pata hard drive to a sata hard drive ie ghosting or imaging it.
However the sata hard drive is sat in a pc with a mother board that accepts sata hard drives only.
i tried a imaging program off a floppy disk but it doesnt detect sata drives or usb drivers.
Sooo anyone know of a program that allows to me to boot up the pc and detects both sata and usb drives? as obviously i cant boot off the sata drive to then copied over it.

Acronis True Image on a bootable cd will just about copy anything to anything. It detects USB drives. You can install the the PATA drive into a USB enclosure and Acronis will detect it.

I don't know if the trial allows for the creation of a bootable recovery CD.
