Turn any IDE or SATA drive into a convenient external drive! Simply connect one IDE/ATAPI or SATA-based mass storage device through a USB port to easily transfer files from a computer or laptop, backup files or store large file archives on an external hard drive. The USB 2.0 interface enables easy installation with its plug-and-play design. The adapter supports all existing IDE/ATAPI devices such as Iomega Zip, CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM and IDE hard drives. Compatible with current drive sizes on the market such as 1 and 2 TB SATA and 750 GB IDE drives.

Because this adapter can handle all sizes and types of mass storage drives, it's a great solution for recovering personal files from IDE or SATA drives from computers that have had motherboard failures. Includes an integrated USB transceiver; supports USB Suspend/Resume and Remote Wakeup; and a 5 Volt (1 Ampere) power supply that supports both SATA power and standard 4-pin Molex (LP4) power connectors. Plus, the on/off switch on the power supply lets you shut off an attached drive without having to disconnect when not in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product worked greatMy Primary Laptop hard drive failed. I was able to use chkdsk to reassign sectors. Then I needed to copy my 120G drive to my new 320G. I bought The USB 2.0 to IDE or Serial ATA Drive Adapter.This allowed my hardware connection for my software copy application to copy the old drive contents. Then I installed the new 320g drive and all problems resolved

Rated 5 out of 5 by from USB 2.0 to IDE or Serial ATA Drive AdaptI used this product to gain access to a HDD thqa twas infected by a virus and would not let me access any data in it, it was very easy to use and allowed me to do what i needed to do, the only thing i would've liked better was if it had a longer connection wire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works where other options won'tWonderful product to have in a technician's bag of tools. I have a cheaper USB to IDE adapter which has begun not to work very well, bought this as a replacement as well as to add SATA support. The first drive I used it on was a SATA laptop HDD, WD Scorpio Blue with a damaged primary NTFS partition. Hooked up as a secondary drive, no computer I have would boot to it's own installation of Windows off another drive, instead it would hang at start-up. If I unplugged this drive from an otherwise good system, Windows would continue to load off the primary hard drive. Knoppix loaded and mounted the partitions, but saw this particular partition as having no files or folders, even after running NTFSFIX. Clonezilla failed to load with this drive attached. Knowing this adapter was en route, I put off the diagnosis for a couple days, and when it came in I hooked it up to a Windows 7 machine that would hang when this drive was plugged in via on board SATA. It let me see the partition and its contents, and run CHKDSK on it. Will know in a few hours if GetBackData can retrieve info from the corrupt user folders, but it looks promising.I absolutely love the fact that there is an in-line power switch. Other similar tools I have used have not had this.My guess is those giving it negative reviews may have only tried this on one drive, which may or may not have had other problems. I have tried this on several good drives with no issues, and even drives with known issues have good success being read by Windows or Linux using this adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time saver!I am using it to access files from my old computer Hard Drive while I configure and transfer the files I need to keep on my "new" computer. I don't want all the junk files I have collected on the new machine, but I don't want to take the time to sort all the files before moving. This way I have my old drive as an external but readily accessible location for the files I need as I make the transition to the new machine. One negative issue: while testing the cable I tried several old Hard Drives I had lying around and it only worked on the fully functional ones. i.e. If a drive wasn't formatted it wasn't recognized. It works for me . . .
