Arkan Posted November 29, 2009 Share Posted November 29, 2009 (edited) Since my last PC died on me, and I got my new DELL pc, I wanted to install the 250GB drive from my old pc to my new one for extra storage. Well, the old one seems to be ATA, and the new setup seems to be SATA (I think?)...at least, the new cables are all small wires and power cables, whereas, of course, the old one has the wide flat cables and such. Is there any way to get the old HDD installed into the new PC? Or do I essentially have a 250GB brick on my hands? Edit: Or am I looking for an IDE to SATA type of thing? Edited November 29, 2009 by Arkan "Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger." - Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials "I have also been slowly coming to the realisation that knowledge and happiness are not necessarily coincident, and quite often mutually exclusive" - meta Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
