Need PATA adapter or PATA dock
I'd like to get an adapter probably that would let me dock a 3.5" PATA
drive, that would be compatible with a SATA dock I haven't bought yet.
I had decided to buy a 3.5/2.5" SATA hard drive dock, that connects to
the computer by USB (or eSATA if you convince me that is important. I
would have to buy a card with external SATA port, and I'm running out
of slots, but I could do it.)
I was thinking of the Thermaltake 2 bay SATA dock, because I thought a
2-bay drive might allow copying one drive to the other. Now I have
major problems with the PATA drive of the computer I use normally
(which won't do anything now), and I don't want to buy a SATA dock and
a PATA adapter that won't be compatible with each other .
Price is one consideration.
Thanks a lot.
P.S. One webpage says "* HDD screw is not included! " in RED no
less. Are they just talking about the litlle screws that mount the
harddrive, or is there something I don't know about? I have plenty
of little screws.
