Hardware, Embedded Systems Current computers use SATA disk drives. Pentium IV's and earlier computers used the IDE drive standards. How can you intermix SATA and IDE disk drives? This article discusses the options. It is the next in my series of articles on computer refurbishing.

If the IDE/SATA adapter doesn't work, it's probably defective hardware. I'd try another one. Since this is supposed to be copmletely transparent it should work on any system.

The controller card is harder to diagnose. It could be anything causing the problem, but most common is software driver compatibility issues.
