Serial ATA, or SATA, is a relatively new storage technology that is now being adopted in computers. It is the successor to Parallel ATA. SATA allows for faster transfers between the hard disk and the system, uses thinner cables and is easier to physically install

Dynamode Bi-directional IDE to SATA Adapter is rated 1.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Description is wrong The description given for this unit is incorrect and the documentation (if you can find any), is even worse.. It will not change a 40 pin motherboard connector into two SATA connectors. It is in fact for changing a single 40 pin (motherboard) IDE connector to a single SATA drive. Or a single SATA (Motherboard) connector to a 40 pin hard drive. On the units that I have, the give away is the text underneath the SATA connector. And yes, you do have to connect power to the board or it will not work at all. While they did make an IDE to 2x SATA adaptor in the past, they´ve long since stopped making them. ( The two port one I still have in use came from Lycom.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from How I got mine to work I used a DVD-ROM drive Your device MUST be set to Master, as I am using a DVD-ROM drive, I plugged in a known good S-ATA cable to the top S-ATA port, and ensured the power connector was in correctly. If the LED doesn't light up on boot - something isn't right. I had problems when I plugged my disc drive into the other S-ATA port. This may be for hard disks, I do not know. The board goes in components facing up. There is a notch which you should line up. All pins must be connected evenly and fully. Ensure your S-ATA ports are enabled, mine are set to IDE mode, but I haven't tested AHCI yet. I'm not plugging in anything else for a while. I am using S-ATA 3. BIOS detected it and thus the OS will too. All it does is translate serial into parallel the device can recognise. Hence why no drivers are required. There may be a little performance drop - but I'm not bothered about that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from IDE/SATA Adaptor Bought two. No instructions included. First one powered up ok but computer would not recognise a drive in either configuration. Leds would not even light up on second. Binned both, complete waste of money. I'm surprised at Scan selling junk like this: its the only time I've been unlucky in everything I've bought from them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from didn't work Did not work at all. I knew from other reviews that the documentation was poor and that some had issues using it for optical drives but wanted it for a hard drive. It did nothing, did not show up in the BIOS and neither of the LEDs illuminated when powered. I'm not sure if they are supposed to light up as there are no instructions, as other reviews have mentioned, but I am assuming they were put there for some reason. I've not sent it back as by the time I've paid postage and taken the time to request the return and go to the post office it hardly seems worth it. Maybe I'm just being lazy but since I got an email asking for a review I thought I would share my experience and based on this I suggest finding an alternative.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No instructions and only works in some circumstances. I purchased two to allow me to use old PATA devices with my new SATA only motherboard. There were no instructions. After a bit of trial and error with the connections, I got the old hard drive working perfectly. However, I was unable to get the old DVD writer working at all. I thought one adapter might be faulty so swapped them around but the hard drive still worked and the DVD writer still didn't. Another point to note is that you will need both power to the device and power to the adapter so you might need to also buy a molex splitter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Couldn't get this to work! I wanted a solution for my old IDE DVD+-RW drive, as there was no IDE ports on my new Z87 motherboard. Despite trying every combination possible, including jumper settings on the DVD drive, the most I could get out of it was that the light came on, and the drive was not detected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not do as it said it would Used 2 modules in IDE mode to enable 4 SATA connections. Would only enable 1 SATA port on each module
