So I'm trying to resurrect an old computer. Everything else works, the problem is just the hard drive. You know how they are... over time they develop errors and stuff. Another problem is some of the old BIOSes only recognize drives up to 30gb, and since I don't know who made the BIOS, I can't find updates and flash them.
Well, lately I heard about something called a "Solid State" hard drive, which is supposed to have NO moving parts--so its basically like a flash drive permanently installed in a PC. So I thought "what a concept! Hey, if I could get one of these babies to work in this old computer, it would probably be as durable as my NES!"
So, put simply: has anyone ever seen or heard of adapters that would allow one of these Solid State drives to plug into an old desktop's ribbon cable and power supply plugs?
Super awesome thank you in advance if anyone replies.
