IDE and SATA together
Posted on 2006-07-13
I am trying to help my sister get her pictures and other information off of her old hard drive before we throw the old computer out. I tried hooking it up to mine, but I have a SATA hard drive running and hers is the older IDE. Can I use hers as a slave to mine? I am running XP with an Aopen MB 'AX45F-4DN'. When I tried to boot it up as a slave to one of my DVD drives my computer wouldn't recognize my SATA drive, and therefore couldn't load windows. Thanks for any help.
