Hello,
my current PC supports SATA HD's. My older computer has 5 IDE (PATA) HD's. Is there such a thing as a hot swap bay that has a SATA connector to the motherboard but accepts PATA HD's in the enclosure?

I can deal with shutting the system down to swap HD's. I want to avoid having to crawl around on the floor, unplug and open the PC to switch HD's. So I guess my question should be, is there an internal bay with SATA hookup to the MB that is compatible with PATA/IDE HD's.
