When I was building the Rig I have now, I ran into this problem. I was going from my old Pentium 4 to my new Core i7. The P4 has a very good Panasonic SW-5582 Blu-ray Burner, but it was IDE and my new Rig called for SATA. So I looked at converters, but decided to buy a new SATA Blu-ray Burner and went with the Plextor BD Burner. Both Burners are still going strong, I use my P4 as a Server and my new Rig as my Video Workstation.
