Ok here is the situation. Last week, my motherboard fried and I was forced to buy a new computer to keep the family happy. My old hard drive is still in tact, so I figured I would just pop it into the new pc and have access to all of my files. I opened up the case to my new computer and found that (now I'm not too hardware savvy, so I may soon sound like an idiot) there is no available IDE connection on the motherboard besides one for a non existent floppy drive. Also, the hard drive that came with my new pc is a SATA and my old hard drive is a ATA. The power cords seem to be some sort of skinny black wire and not the old 4 prong kind either. Any ideas? do they make converters? Thanks in advance!
The new computer is a Gateway, model number GT5620 and my old hard drive is a Western Digital WD800.
