SATA & PATA Adapters

CRU's SATA and PATA Adapters are easy to use! Just attach a SATA or PATA Adapter to your drive dock, and access many kinds of drives including:

  • Toshiba 1.8-inch drives (the type used in many older iPods)
  • SATA drives, either 2.5- or 3.5-inch size
  • 2.5-inch Notebook Drives and Hitachi 1.8-inch drives
  • PCCARD drives, as used in PCMCIA slots, and PCMCIA adapters for Compact Flash, Sony Memory Stick, SD, MC
  • Hitachi 1.8-inch ZIF drives
  • Toshiba 1.8-inch ZIF drives
  • Disk on Module (DOM) drives
  • SATA, PATA, and USB types of mini PCIe
  • mSATA (mini-SATA) drives
  • drives from MacBook Air computers (2010-2011 models)

SATA and PATA adapters work on Mac OS, Windows, and work great with backup and forensic imaging software. When used with a forensic (write-blocking) dock, all data transfer through SATA & PATA Adapters is write-blocked.

Note: PATA Adapters MCB and DOM are not compatible with v5 generation products such as UltraDock v5.
