Hi,
I was wondering if there was any way that I can convert a SATA2 to a SATA1. From what I gather its possible to do via a cable or software however I havnt come across any of these yet but if anyone has any info or links to any of these that would be great.

Thanks in advance

Aidan

I know on some sata 2 drives there is a jumper to change for the drive to run as sata 1.

I have used this on a maxtor sata 2 drive, other manufacturers I cannot comment on.

Ah right I see. I wonder if its worth just buying one and risking it...

But thats well worth knowing.

Thanks

Best to draw up a short list and get the manuals off the net.

All SAT2 drives I have seen have had the manufacturers pins to drop it down to SAT2.

Oh and they don't supply the pins with the drive.
