I've a Buddha Phoenix Card for my A2000.
I need to install a big Hard disk.
It's very difficult to find a 500 GB IDE PATA, so I'm thinking about an adapter to use my sata 500.
Someone tell me about ?
There are problems?

It's' a good idea?

Thx
Fabrizio

I've used an IDE to SATA adapter in my A1200 without problems using a 120gb drive. The only downside I could find is that the adapter does not like having a second device on it's IDE channel when using a buffered interface. Besides that it worked perfectly fine, it was one of those cheap adapters from China on ebay.
