My son saw a great deal on a Western Digital HD and I, being in a hurry, went ahead an ordered it without looking into things. Well, it is a SATA drive, which came with no paperwork, no cables and no jumpers, even though it needs them. The kid's computer is IDE bus based (as are all the other machines here), and I don't know how to deal with this. Are there adaptors? Are the 2 busses compatible through an adaptor? What is involved in getting a SATA device to work in a Windows NT Home machine? Do I have to play around in setup?
Is this $75 down the drain, or can I salvage this whole thing?
