It will work. SATA is backwards compatible. Just slower.

I think it should be compatabile, you just wouldnt get sata 3 speed from the dvd drive. Although from what I hear the dvd drive won't ever really go that fast anyway. If the dvd drive is fairly old then maybe check for board bios or drive firmware updates if things don't work out, but the sata should work with sta.
