My Motherboard does not have SATA capabilities, it is strickly IDE.
Is there an PCI exspansion card that allows the connection of SATA DVD-RW drives to a system that does not have intergrated SATA ports?
(EDIT:) Just wanted to add my motherboard does not have a PCI Express slot either.

Thanks as always in advance!

I would recomend something along these lines: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...0-003-_-Product it should work for ya. They do make a IDE to sata adaptor as well, but Ive never had any luck getting them to work, so I cant say as I recomend those.

Thanks for the reply I just checked out newegg before seeing your post.

I found the Koutech PSA150 PCI to SATA Dual channel host controller along with a SATA drive power adapter.

The one you mentioned is good to because it supports 4 SATA drives

I think thats my choice as its time to upgrade this Mb to some form of SATA.

Thanks again for your reply! :thumbsup:
