I've got a copy of Maximum Force I'm thinking of selling.

The HDD works fine, but since it's so old, I thought I'd also trying adding an SD card adaptor.

I need to make an image of my Maximum Force HDD, but unfortunately I only have SATA interfaces on my PC.

Can anyone recommend a cheap USB IDE interface that works with CHDMan?

You may be better off getting a sata to ide adapter. Or maybe even a cheap pci or pci-e ide card.
Currently looking for: 14" and 19"/20" Hantarex/WG/Electrohome/Kortek etc. monitor frames

I found a guide where someone had done this with Area 51 and apparently the serial no didn't show properly and the settings were not copied across. It's not the end of the world, but it would be good to have a 1:1 of the original disk.
