Hard Drive difference

Question

Valv

Calling all the super geeks here....

I need to upgrade my HDD, I have a Sata, but I see now there's Sata 1.5gb and Sata 3.0gb.

What's the difference ?

Thank you Sir !! If I have a system with a 1.5gb I assume it won't be a problem a 3.0gb right ?

They are supposed to be backward compatible so it should not be a problem. Lots of information here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

Depending on which one you get, some will automatically recognize the 1.5 and downgrade themselves, but many will have a jumper setting on them that you have to change to tell it to work at the 1.5 speed.

It should work as has been said, but if your board is only SATA 1.5 capable you will get only SATA 1.5 speed from the SATA 3.0 drive.

I just found this program that can help you out.

Go to the Goog and enter "system information for windows". Go to the first link and download the program. There's no install, it's just a download and run.

After you start the program, under Hardware on the left side pick "Motherboard". This will tell you the motherboard make and model number which you can use to search for the specifications on what it supports.

Another option, I don't see any options to tell you what kinds of hard drive interfaces you support, but it will tell you what you already have installed. Under Hardware again, pick "Storage Devices". Click on the one called "Fixed Hard Disk Media" and look at the interface column. If it says IDE SATA then you have SATA 1.5Gbps, it if says IDE SATA-II then you have SATA 3.0Gbps.

That's a neat software, thanks. I found out my HDD is Sata II, great.

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!
