Default HD question

I have a HD that is sata and is about 2.5 years old. I have an old MOBO which is about 10 years old. The question I have is there an adapter I can use to connect the sat drive to eide port? Also, will the HD be usable?

thx

You'll need one of these: Serial ATA SATA to EIDE/IDE Hard Drive Adapter Converter with Power Cable (Retail)

Yea, they work OK. I've mostly used IDE to SATA converters, but they all work as intended.
