Rated 3 out of 5 by from The 500gig SATA 1 drive is fine - no problems. The 'IDE Conversion Kit' is another matter. This little board has two SATA sockets and two LEDs but no, repeat no, instructions. The red LED comes on when the computer is turned on so presumably this is just a 'Power On' indicator. The yellow LED is (I think) a warning that something isn't right - but what? As this 'converter+SATA HDD' combo is sold as replacing a PATA drive the fact that the board has two SATA sockets raises the question "can I use either socket if I'm only using one drive?" The answer seems to be "No". Only the SATA socket next to the power socket worked when I tried it. I did not try it with two SATA drives simultaniously. Frankly, without a handbook I was getting a bit wary about using this converter at all. It didn't seem to work with an optical SATA drive (an LG Blu-ray). Should it? In the end I put the converter board aside and bought Maplin's PCI to 2xSATA card (which included instructions). This card worked without problems so I paid a bit over the odds for the 500gig SATA1 HDD. PCs have quite enough oddities without converter cards that lack instructions. For that reason I'll have to lower the star rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I installed this package to a 2003 P Bell iMedia 5009 pc with 1.5Mb RAM then clean installed Win 7 Home Premium full version. No problems at all with the adapter card or drive, except I had to source a new power cable as the 4-pin Molex end on the one provided was the wrong gender to match my free PSU cables. I would have liked to have seen some instructions and the adapter card could be a more secure fit in the mobo IDE ribbon cable slot. As expected I had to overcome the odd Win 7 installation problem, such as unable to use the CD tray and a few drivers missing/uncompatible, but all fixed via web users knowledge. Update to my previous review I secured the adapter board using a hot-glue gun. This is firm but removable without damage if necessary. The adapter and HDD have proven faultless in service under Win 7 - 32 bit. Very happy with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was very pleased with the delivery service, unfortunately when I tried to fit it I found it did not fit, I phoned the help centre for advice they put me on to a tech engineer, the help he gave me was excellent, sent me the correct one I am pleased to say is now fitted and running well. Thanks to your support staff I am back on line. Mike Gardiner

"OEM 500GB SATA 3.5 Inch Hard Drive with IDE Conversion Kit" , can this disk convertor/adapter STILL allow a Master and a Slave disk to be attached off the same IDE cable or does this Conversation reduce the Disk controller to a single disk?

Asked by: Steve
The board has 2 SATA connectors for attaching Master/Slave drives
