I got an Abit NF7-S last weekend and its all running lovely, but there's this dongle thing in the box which has been nagging at me to try it out.
From what I can see, its a converter to turn a normal IDE drive into a SATA one.
Its a bit of black plastic which plugs into the back of an IDE drive and then you've got two sockets on the back for power and for the SATA cable.
Am I right in thinking this is to convert an IDE drive to SATA or is it so you can use an IDE drive with an existing SATA array?
If it is for converting a drive to SATA, is there any advantage in doing so or should I just wait until I have to get a new drive and then upgrade to SATA?
