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.

Although a quick & simple google search answers these questions, I'm sure the piece was written with good intent and I can appreciate that.

To make it more interesting, maybe the author should expand it to cover storage device adapters in general:
SATA->IDE
IDE->SATA
SD(*)->SATA
SD(*)->USB
CF->IDE
CF->SATA

etc....
