    Hope there's hope for this situation. Daughter's computer died (motherboard went). It has the old IDE drives and her new one has a SATA hard drive. Is there any way she can get the data off the old hard drives? I told her about making backup copies but she didn't heed my advice.

    Please list the computer make and model.(NEW) you can connect the hard drive to the same place the IDE Optical Drive is connected to access the IDE Hard Drives.

    Thanks. Will give it a try over the weekend when she's home - she hates having anyone mess with her computer when she's not around.
