If you're thinking of getting a new drive for an older system that needs IDE, how risky is it to buy a new IDE drive now? I've heard that Seagate has completely stopped making IDE desktop drives and now only does SATA. What about other manufacturers? If your IDE drive has a problem and it came from a manufacturer who is phasing out their IDE lines, how hard is it to get warranty service (a replacement)?
