    Look d-ad, you know damn well cos you've already Googled it so why bother cluttering my forum up with pointless questions that you already know the answer to on account of you Googling it previously and therefore already know the soddin' answer so why bother, huh?

    Well?

    Go on, tell the forum why.

    Alernatively, you could always Google 'diffence sata ide' in Google to save posting pointless postings.

    Or alternatively even. And what's 'diffence'? Do you mean 'the fence'?

    Spotty, the problem with being a smart **** is that you have to be right all the time.

    The latest motherboards accomodate SATA drives. They offer a quicker reponse time than IDE drives with little difference in cost. Note that the connectors do differ between the two drive types. :)

    I did Google it, oh dotty one, but it came up with thousands of replies, and why should I bother my arse going through thousands of complekated answers when I can come on here and get one clear, concise, spot-doodlie-on, answer?

    Eh? EH?

    Answer me that.

    IDE actually stands for Invasive Dual Entry


    (this d/a bloke's no stranger to that, I suspect)

    DA If you are just replacing the existing IDE HDD then you will need to get an IDE as the chances are your motherboard will not support SATA

    Hi Iwstupid.

    Thanks. What I want to do is add another drive - after losing all my files when my pooter crashed big-time a few months ago, I'm looking for security.

    I had a look inside, and the cable to the existing drive has an extra plug on it.

    Cheers.
