(Gb/s, not GB/s--it's a byte/bit [B/b] factor of 8 that makes it run at ~300MB/s instead of 2400MB/s). | Report abuse sync_nine February 27, 2011 1:11:42 PM Best answer selected by sync_nine. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>DVD drive on SATA 6 GB> Related ressources: ForumWill a SATA I (1.5) dvd rom slow my sata III ( 6 GBs) hard drive to 1.5?
