Hi, i have recently bought a slimline blu-ray/DVd writer and it's interface is IDE. What i would like to know is if i get an IDE to SATA converter so that i can use my blu-ray/dvd writer on a piece of hardware that accepts SATA, will i lose any quality in what is produced?

This is key as i'll want to be able to get the same quality as i would have got when using IDE. The piece of hardware i am using it on only accepts SATA you see and i wondered if the converter will just simply convert it in the same quality as it would have been in with IDE, with blu-ray this will matter as i want good quality as the drive can produce.

I know that the drive i have is a Panasonic UJ-220 for a laptop and it is 133 compatible or something.

Thanks dudes, hope somebody can clear this up for me.

No, there will be no difference in image quality- it's a digital signal. The IDE bus is fast enough to carry an HD signal and going through a converter doesn't really slow it down appreciably.
