IDE / SATA / PATA / SATA Compatibility
Posted on 2006-11-15
I've got a dell poweredge 1600SC 2400MHz xeon server with 120GB IDE disk and I want to add another disk to it.
I was thinking that it would make sense to put a scsi disk in it. But anything that works will do.
Device manager tells me it has the following devices:
LSI Logic Inc Logic PCI-X Ultra320 SCSI Host Adapter
Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller##(Standard IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers)
Can I buy a scsi disk and connector cable, or do I have to stick with IDE ?
