Sata question

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?

  1. Hi :)

    It doesnt matter which port or cable....they are all backwardsly compatable...none will speed it up by the way....

    All the best Brett :)
  2. 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.
