Will SATA III hard drive work with SATA II adapter Tags: SATA Hard Drives Components Last response: June 26, 2010 2:13 AM in Components Share Anonymous June 26, 2010 1:14:12 AM Hello, I have a RC-211 SATA adapter card installed. It is the SATA II standard and I was looking at buying new hard drives. If I buy a SATA III hard drive, will it still work with this adapter, or am I limited to just buying SATA II drives?
