PATA to SATA connector.

My querie today is will my PATA Hard Drive transmit data as fast as a SATA drive will if I get a PATA to SATA connector?

No, I believe it will only transmit data at the speed of the slowest component in the chain - in this case your PATA drive.

To be honest, though SATA is supposed to be quicker than PATA, I've never noticed any real world speed difference between the two interfaces/disks. G
