Startech.com IDE to SATA Adapter Converter works –
Here some photos of my Startech.com IDE to SATA Adapter with a Seagate 2.5 ST9640320AS 640 GB SATA-300 hdd.
No need to butcher the PS2 network adapter.

Hey man im about to buy one adapter maybe, and i was wondering if it needs power supply or its fine with just the usb of the 2.5 hdd? if not how do u give it power to the hdd and adapter? ty
I know this thread is a little bit older (only 2 months since the last post) but I just came across it now and I have to say, that's bloody brilliant using the right angle adapters to get the adapter to fit properly. Most of the SATA to IDE adapters I've been able to find have also been arranged so that when trying to put them into the PS2, they would extend too far towards the bottom. Seeing this post makes me rather hopeful of being able to get an adapter that will work with the PS2 and switch to a nice large SATA drive since it's become rather hard/expensive to find large IDE drives.
Does anyone know what these right angle connectors are called or where to get them? I haven't been able to find anything on Google.

After doing a little research, I found out there are at least three Startech IDE2SAT Taiwanese adapter versions:
A1062-00A The one I currently have and apparently the same one SoCalSRH used in a PS2 Network Adapter mod (Attempt to use a 2.5" SATA 250GB HDD with a v9 PS2)
A1062-00B The shorter one 23mm not like the taller 26mm ones
ST103-00C Shown in DaTippMan's customer image section on Amazon.com
So is your Startech Adapter really 23mm, because mine is slightly more than an inch high? The A1062-00A model more than likely won't fit within the PS2 expansion bay. I can't remember the exact dimensions of the expansion bay, but I do remember that there is a little leeway because Sony used drive rails to secure the HDD, which should give a bit of added clearance. Anyway, I would at least like to know when and where you purchased your shorter IDE2SAT adapter.
I have two A1062-00B adapters, my last purchased date was 9 May 2012.They are both 23mm high and i got them from Amazon.co.uk
ST103-00C which is 26mm and wont fit with the pin headers.
Okay, I'll just have to keep my eyes peeled for one over here stateside.
