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?

Most Sata III drives will work on Sata II it is backwards compatible, but some manufacturer it will require a jumper to be changed.
