ATA 33/100 Compatibility for Laptop HDD
Posted on 2003-11-05
I have an old (3 yo) laptop with an old HDD. The HDD is broken, so I want it to be changed. Unfortunately, my old HDD transfer rate is Ultra-DMA 33. Someone told me that if I buy a new HDD, it will be an Ultra-DMA 100 and will not be recognized by the BIOS.
1) Is that true ?
2) If yes, is there any possibilities to upgrade the bios to make it compatible ?
please remember that it is a LAPTOP HDD, and so the compatibility problem may just occur with laptops.
thanx for any help provided
