About this product


  • Use your IDE HDD on a SATA motherboard

Product overview

• Use your IDE HDD on a SATA motherboard

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A really useful product that helped to migrate data from an old IDE drive on a new mobo that only had SATA connections. Comes with no instructions so two things to note. There is no IDE notch so not obvious which way up - mine went the 'logical' way up so that when the drive was sat on a flat surface with the IDE connector lowest it would only fit one way and still sit level. It is also easy to misalign left/right as the plug is smaller than the IDE socket. And the IDE drive jumpers _must_ be set to 'master'. 'cable select' didn't work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I knew what I had ordered and, as it converts an IDE drive to SATA, it should really be described that way round. Works fine and is easy to install with all the needed pieces. Very prompt service - less than 24hrs! Note: I wanted to rate this "excellent" but the star click will only let me say "average"

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good product. I used to connect my old C drive (ie the boot drive) and DVD drive to a new SATA motherboard and all worked perfectly. It would help if it came with a little bit of info on which way up it plugs into the disk drive (the IDE plug doesn't have the usual key) and on the drive jumper settings (master). The answers are actually in the questions on the Maplin site, but it took me a while to discover that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver Like others here, I needed to use old IDE kit on a new SATA only MOBO, and this did the trick, no fuss no hassle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not Work The SATA to IDE converter did not work and my Windows10 PC would not get further than the BIOS screen. I have thrown it away.

Dose the IDE drive have to be set at Master or Slave? SATA To IDE Convertor Code: A11AZ?

Asked by: Walter
The drive would have to be set as Slave, as using this adapter you cannot use the IDE as a Master drive.
