How can I convert the hard drive from ATA IDE to SATA?
Howdy everyone! I'm getting an Apple TV from eBay, and I'm a little bummed that it uses the old (40GB) ATA IDE hard drive interface, and I'd rather use a 120GB SATA that I have lying around not doing anything. I've looked for connectors or cables that would do the trick, but I don't think I've found one suitable. I located this: http://eshop.macsales.com/item/Addonics/... on OtherWorldComputing, but it seems that it needs to be plugged in to work! I just need something that I can conceal in the Apple TV that you would never know was inside.
Anyone got any ideas? Is there a ribbon cable that would go straight from the logic board to an SATA drive?
Is this a good question?
