Sata burner to IDE MB

vbimport

#1

my head is spinning after reading about the adaptors, i need a new dvd burner an all i can find for a cheap price is satas, so i’ve read about adaptors only working with hds, and have not seen any illustrations of any connections, i believe the adaptor plugs into the MB then you take your red sata cable from the adaptor to the drive, am i missing anything and any adaptors to stay away from

You’ll need to get either a PCI-to-SATA or PCIe-to-SATA controller card with the Silicon Image chipset that has a programmable Flash chip so you can flash it with a BASE firmware.

I second KTL’s recommendation.

I think you just scared the OP to death with “so you can flash it with a base Firmware”.
