As per title.. OUCH. I finally know the difference between a pata and sata. Received a 500gb hdd (Samsung) from Scan. Realised when looking at it that it wont fit the pc i wanted it for. Have found a few convertors online but dont know if that will do the trick. Any solutions? THe convertors all seem to be PATA to SATA. Does it not work in reverse? Just need to know whether i need to now send this back and ask for an IDE drive instead. Any and all help appreciated please.. my original hard drive is making a clicking noise and the pc freezes..
