PATA - SATA

Just got a new hard drive. The problem is my existing HDD is a PATA and the new SATA and the connections are parallel.

Is there an adaptor I can get so I can plug it in? Or can I have a PATA drive only?

You require a Sata Host controller card look on Google i Paid £17 for mine but it was for a seven year old Brio you will find the HD LCD might not work, but you can leave the Pata drive connected but you will have to select what drive you want to boot from.
