Atapi/Ide to Sata adapter question

#1

Hello all! First post here, and let me say that there is a wealth of knowledge on these pages. Kudos to all! :bow:

I have a Plextor PX-760A (ATAPI/IDE) and am buying a Dell Inspiron 530, but the mobo does not support ATAPI/IDE components, and there is no connection for them. I have found many PATA-to-SATA adapters that say they can be used with no throughput loss. Does anyone know if this setup works?

I have tried, to no avail, to locate a PX-760SA, which aren’t for sale anywhere in the world (as far as I can tell), and I really want to use the PX-760A.

Any comments are appreciated!

You can only try.

I try to avoid such adaptors, better getting an extra controller card cheap.
