Its called IDE and yes they are. But just for the record, I have had one and have seen many threads where they cause hardware errors and problems. But I am sure it doesn't happen all the time. But yea, you need a sata to IDE converter.

At microcenter for ~$19 you can get a device that will connect to a IDE or SATA drive and convert to USB. Is a really handy tool for recoving data from old machines and such
