More about : dvd drive sata Best solution dalauder a b G Storage February 26, 2011 1:39:54 PM Yep--and it will run just as fast because the drive can't read data faster than the 3Gb/s data limit anyways. (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).
