Well iMav I too have the saegate Sata II HDD. Now I have no idea as to where to get those small jumpers from. So there is a difference between jumpers for pata and sata HDD's right..


And ravi I am sure that that those red coloured sata cables have to be used with a sata HDD:eek:

Attitude matters
When I purchased the SATA drives, I noticed a small jumper came preinstalled and by default it was set to 1.5Gbs.Removing the jumper makes it a 3Gbs.

I donno whether that has changed now.

I have a computer shop here is vasai (western suburb). He assembles computers and when I asked for a sata jumper. He said that the pata jumper will fit on a sata drive. Pure noob I guess. iMav if you can find it somewhere then buy it , I will collect it personally. Thanks for the replies
