    Yes, it will work, and for a DVDRW you would not notice a speed difference.

    No, you are fine with the one you have - all SATA is backwards compatible. It is only if you were using an SSD or SATA3 HDD would it matter.
  4. No there is no difference in the cables.
  5. Even with SSD the cable makes no difference in speed.

    Thanks for the replys dude.

    Whats the current preffer burning device & media ? I held off looking into this whwn buildimg my pc and tonight I realised my dvdrw (ihas) used sata 1.
  7. Any sata cable will work with dvd,ssd,hhd , with no difference in speed or function.
  8. To be honest, I just use the free software for burning- FreeBurner or ImgBurn (for ISO). AS for media, get a good brand name if the stuff you are burning is vital. For paid for software, I'd go for Nero for all round use.
