Hi everyone, im a little confused with which sata port to use for the dvd rom drive. my motherboard has sata2 and sata 3 ports, but the dvd rom drive is only the first sata 1, and also all i have for sata wires are the sata 6gb wires. From my research i know sata 2 and 3 are backwards compatible, but i couldnt find anything on sata 1 stuff. so my question is which sata port should i plug this drive into, and also can i use the sata 6gb cable to do it?

It doesnt matter which port or cable....they are all backwardsly compatable...none will speed it up by the way....
All the best Brett
Agreed, connect it though to the SATA 3GB port leaving the SATA 6GB free for other stuff and the cables and connectors are all the same.
