IDE or EIDE - is it the same

All the hard drives on sale seem to be EIDE but I only have an IDE drive and controller.
Will it fit?

As far as most people are concerned there is no difference. The extra "E" stands for Enhanced. If you use the device in an un-enhanced situation you will lose that advantage, if there is one!

Don't worry about it - it will work OK.
