If you have a computer that still has IDE, it's time to replace the entire computer.

Why do conservative politicians oppose conservation?
Have you ever stopped to think the long-term GOP immigration policy might be to make the United States of America a less desirable place to live than Mexico?

Ditto. Well past time. They have not made consumer IDE machines for probably close to a decade. Consumer IDE drives are no longer manufactured since I think 2013. Ridiculous to be spending more money trying to fix something that obsolete imo.

My last machine with IDE was built in 2006 and it died a violent death 5 years ago.

I did have a Intel X58 Express chipset (2008) that had IDE on it yet and even at that time everything had been SATA for 5+ years. So OP could have a newer system that had both but I agree it's probably time for a complete replacement. Hard to say with so little explanation and no details.
