    Request a favour from a US Citizen!

    Hi

    Is there an American who would kindly purchase a SATA adaptor for me and send it to the UK ?

    I have a Sata Hard drive I wish to connect to my IDE cable as a Slave and Iíve found the ideal adaptor (see attached jpeg) from an American website www.cooldrives.com. But they only accept Orders from US citizens/address.

    Iíve spent hours looking for a UK/European equivalent all I get are Mother Board adaptors, USB adaptors or PCI Boards.

    This item is ideal, it costs approx $30. (Current sale price $23.98)

    So, if I where able to send you the money to cover this (+ postage to UK) I would be eternally grateful and you would immediately go to the top of my Christmas card list.

    The Item reference is:

    Sata HDD to IDE Cable Converter (ASHj98)

    Web site link is:

    Hi Ernest and Lightwolf

    Thanks for sending the links - I've had a look at these items and they both have femail IDE connectors which would work if I only wanted to run a single SATA as a master HDD. I think these are meant to attach to the mother board then by cable to a SATA HDD.

    I want to keep the original IDE master and simply attach a Slave HDD to the main HDD ribbon cable.

    It needs to go SATA to IDE mail so as to connect to Cable

    but many thanks for reply - I'll keep looking

    regards

    Kev

    I sent them an email asking if I can buy it and have them ship it to the UK. Waiting for response.

    I hope the Amazon thing is right for you because I have not gotten a response from them. They don't have a good site in that I can't even figure how to order.

    Too bad Newegg or ZipZoomFly doesn't have it (I assume).

    Hi jtslim

    This looks as if it would work, its not as elegant as the cooldrives Item but it looks like a good option - many thanks for that.

    Many thanks for trying, much appreciated. It looks as if the Amazon/StarTech item will do the job, so I'll order one of those

    Thanks all for the help

    Regards Kevin
