Aleratec Card Readers & Adapters

Avoid compatibility issues when swapping hard drives by getting an Aleratec® adapter to make the new one a perfect fit. This brand makes different adapters for its line of hard drive duplicators but you can also use them to make drives with legacy interfaces compatible with modern connectors. The adapters convert memory cards, hard disk drives (HDDs), and solid state drives (SSDs) into SATA and IDE devices. Staples® carries a wide selection of these adapters from Aleratec and other computer accessory manufacturers.

Choose the Right Aleratec Adapter for Your Hard Drive
Before ordering an adapter, make sure your computer has a SATA or IDE interface and can hold 3.5-inch HDDs or 2.5-inch SSDs. If you want to fit a slim 2.5-inch HDD into the slot for a 3.5-inch HDD on your computer's motherboard, you need one of Aleratec's 2.5 to 3.5 hard drive adapters. Simply choose between SATA and IDE adapters depending on the interface present on the motherboard. The brand offers a wider selection of SATA adapters. Available options include adapters to make hard drives with micro SATA connectors and SSDs with mSATA and M.2 connectors compatible with full-sized SATA interfaces.

There are other types of Aleratec SATA adapters: those that carry data and power and those that only carry power. The brand's Molex to SATA adapters only carry power. They are power cables that convert four-pin Molex connectors found on legacy PATA interfaces to SATA power connectors. They supply power to drives that require 3.3 volts rather than the traditional 5 and 12 volts needed by SATA drives.

Turn Your Memory Card Into a Hard Drive With an Aleratec Adapter
In addition to its line of SATA adapters for HDDs and SSDs, Aleratec also makes adapters for CF cards. CF or Comapct Flash is a flash memory storage media format mostly used by portable devices like digital cameras. CFast is a variant that offers faster speeds. CF and CFast cards have different sets of pin connectors. While CF supports PATA, CFast has the newer SATA interface. This difference makes the two related flash media formats incompatible. Aleratec offers different SATA adapters for them. With these, you can mount the flash memory devices on your computer and use them like regular hard drives.

What Is the Difference Between mSATA and Micro-SATA Aleratec Adapters?
A micro-SATA adapter is for connecting a 1.8-inch hard disk drive to a full-sized SATA interface. mSATA adapters are for SSDs with mini-SATA connectors.

Can You Add an Aleratec Adapter to a Mac® Computer?
Yes. SATA adapters are compatible with computers running Windows®, Linux®, and Mac operating systems. These computers share the same hardware even though they run different software. The adapters require no special drivers to work.

Are There USB Aleratec Adapters?
Yes. Aleratec makes adapters that repurpose USB ports for other functions. Some of these include USB to VGA adapters for connecting multiple displays and USB to Gigabit Ethernet adapters for connecting PCs to wired networks. These support USB 3.0 and offer fast data transfer speeds. The brand's USB to CF adapter is especially useful for Raspberry Pi® owners that want to add Compact Flash drives to their single-board computers.
