[ARMini-support] reading a (literal) disc in the future

Our newer machines have no floppy drives, naturally, maybe CD or DVD
drives are old-hat too, but nor do they read IDE drives.

Do we have to keep a RiscPC or an Iyonix in reserve, just for the
purpose of reading a floppy or an archived harddrive?

Is it possible to connect an IDE drive to an ArmX6 somehow, just to
copy the contents of an actual *disc* to modern solid-state media?
Is there maybe such a thing as an IDE-to-Sata adapter (including
requisite power connection)?
