Machine: Desktop Acer Aspire M5700 HDD and DVD on this mother board are all SATA. There is an IDE socket (34 pin) on the mother board for floppy drive. Question: Is it possible to utilize this 34-pin-socket for installing a 40-pin-IDE hard drive? Any device for this setting? Thank you.

The are not even close to being compatible You can however get a SATA to IDE converter to use an IDE drive on SATA. Something like this. just to give an idea, the link is what google gave me http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item... The same thing can also be purchased with USB(and External). Again, What Google gives me http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...
