why not ide to m-sata. I've used those a lot. These things here are beast mode. I think I am the only person on vogons who uses them. When I tested this thing I was able to fully saturate the Ultrabay bus on my T43 think pad. That means T43 uses Ultrabay system that is a sata 150 bridged into ide for the harddrive. I was able to fully saturate this with one of these adapters.
There also is just sata to ide adapters and you can just use a normal SSD.
Anyways those Jmicron I think its what they are using Ics worked fine with a 440bx. I can't say for sure if they will work or a antiquated IDE controller.
