I recently purchased a Gateway FX6000; I would like to be able to put my old drive which is a WD800 JB in one of the two empty trays on the new machine that are eSata. Is there an adapter for the WD EIDE drive ?

Thanks for the quick reply. However, the item you tagged is not what I was thinking of; I need to get the WD drive into the removable tray on the Gateway. :bounce:
I will probably end up buying a SATA drive and have the WD IDE drive copied to it. Then i can put the new drive into the tray as a removable hard drive which will be my XP boot drive.
