USB to IDE adapters are handy gadgets!

Today I helped an owner of a new PC transfer his files from a pair of old hard drives (removed from his failed old PC, which ran Windows XP) to his new PC, which was running Microsoft® Windows Vista, Home Premium edition.  Because his new PC lacked an IDE drive controller (its hard drive had a SATA interface), we couldn’t simply hang the old IDE drives off the new PC’s IDE bus. After a couple of false starts, we completed the job by using a USB to IDE adapter.
