Convert SATA DVD Burner to IDE...?
by ddoorn - 8/18/10 7:52 PM
I think I've already answered my question via browsing the forums, however just to be sure:
I mistakenly ordered a SATA DVD burner to replace my old DVD burner on my IDE-based PC.
Can I convert the SATA DVD burner so that it will be possible to use in my IDE-based PC?
I've seen SATA to IDE converters, howevever they cost almost as much as a new DVD burner, which I wouldn't bother to do.
However, I just wondered if there are any low cost alternatives to somehow "tweak" an SATA DVD burner so that it will work on my IDE PC? I just hate the thought of trying to send this thing back via mail order.
Thx in advance,
