Hello,
I am planning on purchasing a Blu-Ray DVD Drive with a SATA interface. My computer is 2003 vintage and has an IDE motherboard. What do I need to make this work. If you can suggest a converter, please provide manufacturer and part No.

Sincerely,
WaltK

Ideally, a SATA-IDE converter will let the BD drive work with your mobo, but you might encounter some compatibility/bottleneck issues. Consider an upgrade or even getting a PS3 if you desperately need a BD player but don't have the funds for a full Pc upgrade.
