    Hi, I recently purchased a dell 9150 and I do have experience with installing hard drives, but I was trying to install one in this sytem. I am to the understanding the system takes SATA drives, but the drive I purchased is PATA. I looked at the drive that came with the computer and instead of a normal ide cable it has some sort of a converter and then a small cable plugging in where the ide cable would've gone. Is this something new? Would I be able to find this converter and make it work?

    Thanks,
    Brian
