    Not sure where to put this question....I have an external hd enclosure that accepts IDE drives. I have a SATA drive I'd like to use. Is there any sort of converter that will let me use the SATA drive in this enclosure? Thanks.

    Short answer - No.

    There are convertors, but almost without exception there would not be sufficient physical space in the enclosure to use the convertor.

    Thanks

    it's a specific kind of drive you need to put in there. should have gotten a case compatible with the drive you want to use.

    better off ebaying it, buying the kind you need to use. or doing same with hard drive.

    It was given to me and I was just asking a question if it was possible. Seems it's not.
