Hello everybody As you can see my little question, I was wondering what is the best way to protect the HDD from the SATA to IDE Adapter. I read / heard sometimes, that it could be dangerous, since the HDD and the adapter are too close together and might burning at the end (which really no one wants), because of the overheating or something electrical between those two equipments. I don't know if this happened or if it is possible, but I just want to be on the safe side. Do I have to use an electrical tape or is a bubble wrap enough, which I would set between the HDD and the adapter? Or do I even have to use something else? I know it is a detail question, but I want just to be sure and I also want to do the correct way. Please let me know if you need more information! For any answers, I am very grateful! Note: The adapter I got is called "DeLock 62510 Converter", if this information is needed. I am using a 80 wire IDE cable and the HDD that I got is a "WD1002FBYS" 1TB.
