I'm putting a SATA hard drive in one of my 5810's The drive is a WD 500Gb out of a Humax PVR. I've used one of these adapters, I can hear the drive spinning up, but the PVR doesn't seem to be able to see it. Has anyone had any success?

I haven't found anyone confirming (or otherwise) that the adapter works.

These links are getting very old now.....

A bit late for you now but andyfras can (could?) supply a relatively cheap adapter and cable (well it worked on my toppy).

Does the data cable need to be drilled and/or swapped end for end? (first post in this thread)
