ide converer whatever

I am looking to put in an SSD into one of my old laptops.
The interface is IDE is there a converter small enough to fit inside the space plus the SSD.
Or is it possible to put in an M.2 and an IDE converter.
I can hear you saying why don't you just buy another laptop.
We I'm happy with this and besides when I do finally decide to get rid it will be just a straight reversal.

  1. You have 2 options, m.2 to ide or sata to ide.
  2. Issue with a SATA to IDE converter as you wont be able to fit the drive inside your laptop. You can get something like this for an M.2 to IDE https://www.amazon.com/44pin-Converter-Adapter-Computer-Accessries/dp/B06XC36V63

    Or you could do mSATA to IDE https://www.amazon.com/Ableconn-IIDE-MSAT-2-5-Inch-Converter-Aluminum/dp/B017VQT5YW
  3. Hi there
    I looked at the Amazon item;
    https://www.amazon.com/44pin-Converter-Adapter-Computer-Accessries/dp/B06XC36V63?tag=skim0x3152-20
    On the listing it states"does not ship to the United Kingdom"
  4. I have also looked at the second item and it looks like it might do the trick.
    As this answer is coming from my Windows Phone I really need to see it on a monitor for a better perspective.
    I will update you later.

    To me looks like an external case, which I don't want thanks.
