I have a Disc Publisher that needs a replacent DVD Drive installed. Unfortunately the manufacturer switched from IDE DVD drives to SATA ones not long after I bought mine, so the connector to the board is IDE but I can only find qualified SATA drives to buy.
Is it as simple as using an IDE to SATA adaptor/converter?

Yes, here are some at newegg; there are others, I could only list 5. You can decide which will fit best in your system and your price point.
