    Question Serial ATA to paralell ATA adapter?

    Hey Everyone, I am not sure if this has been asked already, but I would like to know if there are any adapters available that will make a SATA drive work on a PATA controller. I am thinking about changing my current system to a Shuttle XPC SN45GV2 but I also want to use a 74GB raptor, which is SATA only. Is there a way to make the Raptor work in the SN45GV2 (Nforce2 Ultra 400) without a add-in controller as I need to the pci slot for something else.

    Thanks

    themortarman, thanks for the info but it seems like all the adapters they sell make PATA drives work on SATA controllers.

    But as it turns out, shuttle is releasing a SN45GV3 that has SATA onbard so I no longer need the adapter. Thanks
