  1. You won't notice any real-world difference with your drive in SATA 1 mode.

    HDDs can be SATA 3 compatible, but they are not SATA 3 capable.
    Your drive can transfer the contents of its 32MB buffer at SATA 3 speeds, but that's it.
    No HDD can spin fast enough to Read/Write at SATA 3 speeds.

    But I'm want know: how to make the hdd work with my motherboard that can only work in Sata1 mode (PT800CE-A motherboard on VT8237).

  3. SATA drives are backwards compatible so you don't have to do anything other than connect the drive to a SATA port on the motherboard.
  4. Yes, in theory, but there are exceptions, such as VT8237 controller (see the link given above).
