  1. Been that way for at least 3 years. Motherboards have reduced or eliminated IDE connections to use those channels for other features. But if your board has SATA and PATA/IDE, you can use the PATA/IDE for your burners. I can't see any difference in play or recording between SATA and PATA/IDE.
  2. less clutter and better air flow. One less thing for the BIOS to worry about.
  3. Also, to make California liberals happy:
