In that case just buy a new one, they are like $20 Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer Kisianik a b G Storage May 13, 2013 8:31:27 AM No you can not, it is IDE and now there is SATA. There is a way to interconnect, but it is not worth the efforts and money, plus performance would be very slow compare to new ones. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
