This (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16827131351) is the only one that's out so far. I've heard mixed things about it, but if you want to get away from PATA, you don't have any other options.

Ok thanks - thats to beige and too expensive at the moment for me.
I'll wait for it to be mainstream I think.

Yeah and it's a Plextor. Ick.
Honestly if it were me I'd just get myself a regular IDE burner and put it in an enclosure. This is one sort of application that is not going to benefit from SATA in the slightest.

plextor aren't that good latelly
preffer my benq and pioneer
I think MSI makes a sata model also...
But yea, you can buy those IDE converters, to convert any drive to SATA. Th plextor is an IDE drive with basically a converter inside.

The MSI is a combo drive and uses regular molex for power. Asus also has a combo drive sata but I couldn't find it anywhere.
Here are the sites for those drives.
