Can you guys tell me what I need to make a SATA drive fit into my sister's computer. People on nasioc are saying that this is just an adapter sleeve on a SATA drive. The drive itself is marked SATA, but I don't see anyway to take the connection off. The issue is I have two laptops with two toasted drives. My laptop is an IDE connection, but I was stupid and didn't physically open the computer before I ordered a hard drive. Based on the info. I found online and that I was told, I ordered a SATA drive. Therefore I have a drive right now that I cannot use in my computer. I have another computer with a drive marked SATA on it, but the connection looks entirely different than a usual SATA connection. I'm told on nasioc that its a SATA drive with an adapter sleeve on it. If this is the case, I want to know how I can take the sleeve off the drive pictured and put it on the band new SATA drive that is not pictured. Any help would be appreciated.
