Having to downgrade to another PC, and there is no SATA interface ports to drive my DVD burner. I have SATA power for the burner, but I need a PCI card to hook the other SATA cord to. I need a cheap one, maybe eBay or something. Hell, if someone could tell me exactly what this PCI card is called, I could find one myself. Thanks guys.

A search for pci to sata card should get you what you are looking for.

You will want to make sure it has at least 1 internal sata port.

Sorry, but the PC that I'm working on doesn't have a PCI-E slot, just the regular PCI.

Do not see why not.

At that price I hope it works for you.

hehe sry I linked the wrong card meant to put a PCI one in there, but in any case the one you found should work fine.

I would be willing to spend a little more for a card, considering the importance of such :). I had to laugh when I saw that eBay card :)...I'm not a fan of eBay, prefer retailers.

I'd have a lot more confidence in the $7 card from Ultra depicted at http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/search.asp?keywords=SATA controller PCI card&sort=Price&dir=asc .

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=40000410%204093&IsNodeId=1&Description=sata%20controller%20pci&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=20 , the Syba chipsets are often the ones used in inexpensive motherboards providing RAID functionality.
