I need an IDE to SATA converter for a few hard drives I have. Been looking at ebay and aliexpress. I come across these things:
If you look at the picture it shows that it uses 2 power connections shown. One directly to the converter and one to the ide drive itself. Is this just showing there are 2 methods to power the hard drive or that in order to use this converter you need to plug the power in both ports?
Also, it looks like the converter has 2 SATA ports. Why does it have 2, so I can plug into 2 computers at the same time???
