I have an HP Vectra VL400 733MHz computer.
It supports only UltraATA/66.
I want to purchase a new HDD, but as I saw, in most of the stores, there aren't any ATA/66 HDDs anymore, only ATA/100 and better.
The question is - will the ATA/100 HDD work on my motherboard with the ATA/66 controller (with ATA/66 speed of course), or will it not even be detected?
I know that plugging ATA/66 HDD to ATA/100 Controller WILL work since it is backwards compatible, but does it work the other way around?
Googling didn't help me much...
Thank you very much!
