Sata HDD on IDE

  dennis$&$ 13:57 22 Nov 2008

I have a P4 3.0g comp that I recently fitted a new PSU which has allowed for power to sata drives.I have a Maxtor 500gb sata drive but no where to connect data, only IDE cables. It means I can power the drive but no data..Does anyone know a way round this or is it a no go ?. please make an old man happy....Dennis.

you can buy a SATA card to fit into a PCI slot if your motherboard does not have a SATA connector
