Converter for connecting SATA Hard Disk Drive into IDE port.

Today I came to know that converter is available for connecting SATA Hard Disk Drive (HDD) into old mother board which is not having support for SATA Hard Disks.

IDE hard disk used in one of our computers was failed. I thought of replacing this failed IDE hard disk with new SATA hard disk drive. But I realized that the mother board of this computer is not having support for SATA hard disk.

I bought a converter (IDE to SATA Zippys)for connecting the new SATA hard disk into the old mother board.
We need to provide separate power supply for the converter also.

Interestingly, the same converter can be used for connecting IDE Hard disk into the SATA port of new mother boards.

I'm trying to do the same thing with my SATA hard drive and old motherboard. seemingly with the same adapter product.

When i try to boot up, i get a secondary master hard disk failure.

Can you check whether you have connected the cable into proper port/socket/pins in the converter? Because the same converter will be used for both IDE-to-SATA and SATA-to-IDE conversion.

And also, make sure that you have provided power supply for the converter.
