I believe you need a device like that.
You can get it there, if that is not the same device that you already have.
Then you simply plug the Sata device into this converter, and then plug the converter into an empty slot on your IDE ribbon cable.
Why not just add a PCI Sata controller? http://computing.kelkoo.co.uk/ctl/go...key=0&orw=true
Those are relatively cheap, but it requires you to have a free PCI slot. Then you wouldn't have to lose a single device. and you'd have SATA speeds and compatibility.
