The Embedded IDE- Dual SATA Port Converter instantly turns a standard 40-pin IDE port into two SATA ports. Installation is simple, simply the IDE side of the converter directly onto the IDE channel of the motherboard on your system. There is no software or driver to install. Once installed, any SATA storage devices such as HDD, SSD or optical drives can be connected to the system as if they were ordinary IDE or ATAPI devices. It is the perfect solution for legacy equipment without any SATA ports or for adding more SATA ports via the IDE ports that are commonly found on many systems.
