StarTech bridge is perfect I have had no problems with it. You will need the high speed cables for it also. Also for a 2Tb HDD I used Western Digital Black.

HDE IDE-to-SATA adapter

$9.99 ea or 2 for $11.99

You need a 24" long 80-wire 40-pin high-speed IDE cable too.

P.S. The StarTech has been shown to be faster than other less expensive adapters -- have not tested myself how the HDE adapter compares to the Startech IDE2SAT2 @ $17.18+ ea.

Kingwin ADP-06. I've used well over 15-20+ in the past year or so with my 2tb setups, not a single one has failed me yet. Don't forget the 80 wire IDE cable as mentioned above.
