As stated in the title would a Pata to Sata connector/converter work with a CD Drive?
I'm thinking about buying a new motherboard, but it seems it only has 1 Pata connector to work with my hard drive, and my CD drive wouldn't work with it. Or should I just use the Sata converter on the HD and use the CD Pata cable to connect it to the IDE/Pata socket? Any Help would be appreciated.
