Thanks for calling me stupid, but you're incorrect. If ATA is SATA, then why is there a SATA category and an ATA category in newegg, and why did my link show disks with 80 pins on them?
ATA is the shortened term for ATAPI, which is also known as PATA.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Technology_Attachment
Edit: after reading a bit of the article, which is pretty cool, I found that PATA is actually a term only created after SATA was - so ATAPI is really the correct term. Not like it matters any, but whatever.
