i got a couple of Parallel ATA to Serial ATA gizmo's at maplins for £9.99 and they work.

so if you have more SATA then PATA connects you can get your old hard drives running.

I recently bought a little box of tricks that has a power supply and power adaptors for the various HDD types, plus parallel-USB and serial-USB adaptors, so you can power up, plug in and access all your old drives without rebootong, or even taking the side off the PC.  It's come in extremely handy.

Cost about a tenner from Amazon.
