I have an old laptop that I want to keep running Win XP on so as to play my older 32-bit games on. I have a new laptop with Win 7 64-bit that won't install these games. The old laptop has a very slow 4800 RPM hard drive and my new hard drive is 7200 RPM. The old laptop hard drive has what appears to be a 44-pin ide connection while my new drive has a sata. Is there an adapter available on the market that I could buy to connect the new drive to my old laptop? Is there any way to do this? Thanks

No, you cannot get an adapter to install a SATA drive to an IDE connector. If you COULD I would have already done it to my old laptop!
