Hello Experts,

I have Intel motherboard D865GLC which provides SATA 150 controller and was wondering if I can connect SATA2 hard disc to that.
What cable do I need? Ordinary SATA cable? Is SATA2 cable different?


Many thanks.

SATA II drives can be connected to SATA I controllers using SATA I cables.  The only caution is that you may need to set a compatibility jumper on the drive to force it to operate in SATA I mode, becuase some drives are finicky.
