PATA and SATA are the connectors in the back that run to your motherboard. Here is the visual difference between the two, for future reference. The left image is PATA, or IDE as it is referred to as well, and the right image is SATA. PATA stands for Parallel ATA (Advanced Technology Attachment), SATA for Serial ATA.
