asked on

SATA Drives - Do they have data transfer modes or a rough equivalent to data transfer modes?

Take a look at the table titled Features introduced with each ATA revision on the following Wikipedia page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA#EIDE_and_ATA-2

Do SATA drives have transfer mode or transfer rate classifications that are remotely similar to these?

Your SATA drive will use the max available speed of the SATA controller given by your mobo. So no need to worry about that.
