Can i change a pata hard drive to read in a sata port? Answered

My sata hard drive got damaged and is gone for repair. Till then i have a pata hrd drive. Is there a way, like a converter port that makes pata drives compatible on sata ports.

Yes, you can get adapters but i am wondering more about you saying it is gone for repairs. If you sent a defective drive back to the manufacturer usually you do not get the same one back. They send you a refurbished one that is blank, nothing on it.
