Is it possible to transfer files from an IDE drive to an SATA drive connected to the same motherboard?

IDE = Integrated Drive electronics
SATA = Serial ATA

ATA = Advanced Transfer attachment.

SATA drives are also IDE drives, because they have their control electronics integrated.

So I think you mean a PATA (Parallel ATA) drive.

Um, answer is yes :P It makes no difference what type of connection the drive uses, so long as whatever software you're using works with SATA :)

I know... but if I ain't then sometimes I can end up thinking you mean something completely different.

The number of times someones said to me something like "My modem isn't working" and they mean their PC... they think the tower is the modem :P etc

Aye larchy. I have to listen to that everyday too. Or my hard-drive is fucked. Or I've rebooted the system.
