Connecting new laptop hard drive to old laptop

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

  1. 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! ;)
