I need to convert a ribbon data cable to a SATA connection on the motherboard for 2 optical drives and a HDD. What is the cheapest and most effective way to do this? Thanks.

This is what you need http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Highly recommend only using that if you have to. The HDD could fail at any time, as it is aging is its a IDE drive. But that will get you running.
I recommend getting a new SATA drive/Optical drive as soon as possible.

That adapter changes SATA to IDE. You are trying to go from IDE to SATA.

I didn't even notice that, thanks. I suppose I'll buy the original one posted in this thread, I've got to get 4 of them. Thanks for the quick replies by all.
