About a year and a half back I had to replace an old ide drive that was stuffed on one case where the owner had actually ordered a Sata I not II drive!

That had the second molex connector as well as a jumper for changing the mode setting rather then the 8pin seen on all newer drives. Evem Sata III models see the 8 pins and gap on the rear corner still. - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
