Needs to work with Vista - although guessing this should be a problem as long as the mobo detects the hardware. This is to connect an IDE DVD ROM drive in a computer that only has sata connections. If you have something else that will do the job (e.g. external enclosure) I will also consider it if it is cheap enough. Thanks
Shipping/Payment:
BT or PP - please tell me delivered price or I can swap something with you if you'd like!

If you're unable to get a PCI IDE card at a 'reasonable' price see eBay item 360058259697 for £6.74 delivered.

what would I do without you maddogb? - you've put so many doubts in my mind that I'm going back to an external enclosure to be safe! :roll:
