hi, is it possible to run an ide internal hard drive alongside a sata unit? h/d 1 still works fine and contains operating system(vista home premium) on ide,but my 2nd drive (pictures etc) has just died. I have a spare sata h/d already sat gathering dust and am a bit loath to shell out for another ide drive if I can do so.
thanks.

Yes, SATA will run happily alongside IDE, assuming of course that your mobo has SATA connection points - although even if it didn't, it is possible to get adapters IDE/SATA.
