    How to Know if Your Computer Has SATA or ATA (IDE)?

    User-Submitted ArticleIf you want to add a DVD drive or hard drive, but don't know if you have the right kinds of connectors in yourcomputer, this article explains everything. Learn what the different connectors look like, and how many devices you can add


    • Turn off your computer, unplug it, and open the case. Find the cables on the backs of the DVD drive and hard drive
    • Check the connectors to the DVD drive. One connector should have colorful wires leading up to it. This is the power connector. The data connector should be beside it. If the connector beside it is ribbon-like and about 2 inches wide, it's an ATA connector (also called IDE and PATA). If the connector is smooth and only about a half-inch wide, it's a SATA connector
    • Move to the hard drive and repeat the method in the last step to determine what kind of data connector it uses. You may find that you have both ATA and SATA connectors in your system
    • If you have an ATA connector, determine how many DVD drives and hard drives you can add. On the DVD drive, follow the 2 inch wide cable backwards until you come to another connector mid-way along the cable. If it's not plugged into anything, there's room for at least one more device (which is most commonly either a hard drive or DVD drive)
    • Do the same thing with the hard drive. If the connector mid-way through isn't connected to anything, then that's another device you can add. If you found that the hard drive and DVD drive are on the same cable, then follow that cable to where it's plugged in on the motherboard. Find another port like that somewhere else on the board. If there is one, then all you need is another cable, and you can add two more devices
    • While less common, some motherboards have a third ATA port. Follow an ATA cable to where it's plugged into the motherboard, and find another port like that somewhere else on the board
    • If you have a SATA connector, follow the cable to where it's plugged in on the motherboard. There should be several ports just like this nearby. For each empty port, you just need a cable, and you can add another device
    • To add a device, you need power connectors. If the power connector on the DVD drive has four pins and is a foggy-white plastic, it's using the standard 4-pin power connector. If the power connector is thin and has multiple gold contacts inside it, then it's a SATA connector. Look for these just hanging around in the case, not connected to anything. Determine if you have enough power connectors for the devices you want to add

    What is the Difference Between SATA ATA and IDE Hard Drives?

    • Most computers still rely on the venerable IDE technology in the hard drive department. IDE stands for Integrated DriveElectronicsand is also known by the term ATA (Advanced Technology Attachment). The term IDE is commonly used to refer to a particular type of hard drive connection technically called PATA


    • ATA originated in 1984 as a method of combining the controller and hard drive for a direct connection to the bus of the old IBM AT (Advanced Technology) computer. According to Scott Mueller of Mueller Technical Research, the term IDE "originated by the marketing departments of some drive manufacturers to describe the drive/controller combination used in drives with the ATA interface." While all modern hard drives are IDE (ATA), not all are PATA or SATA


    • PATA (Parallel ATA) is a 16-bit parallel interface, meaning that 16 bits of data are simultaneously transmitted down an interface cable. This interface uses a 40-pin (44-pin on laptop PATA drives) ribbon cable to connect the drive to the computer system. The PATA interface can handle up to two drives on a single cable, using jumpers to determine the position (master/slave) of each hard drive


    • SATA (Serial ATA) was introduced officially in 2000 and began adoption into computer systems starting in 2003. Serial ATA (SATA) sends a single bit of data down the interface cable at a time. This enables smaller cables to be used and allows high cycling speeds because there is no synchronization needed. The physical interface is completely different from PATA while still being compatible on a software level with the ATA standard. SATA cables contain seven pins, allowing for much thinner cables which enable easier routing within the computer case. Each cable only supports a single device eliminating the need for jumpers to configure the hard drive position of master or slave


    • ATA and IDE both represent the same type of hard drive--one containing a controller integrated onto the drive itself. As such, both PATA and SATA hard drives are ATA (or IDE) drives
    • PATA and SATA hard drives are software compatible with each other. This means that BIOSes, operating systems and utilities capable of working with one interface are in fact capable of working with the other on a software level


    • PATA hard drives (commonly called IDE) use a parallel method of transferring data down a 40-pin cable. Two PATA hard drives are supported per cable and use jumpers to determine position. PATA drives are powered by a standard 4-pin peripheral power connector
    • SATA hard drives use a serial method of data transfer, sending data one bit at a time down the 7-pin connecting cable. Only one SATA drive is supported per cable so jumpers are not needed. SATA drives are powered by a 15-pin SATA power cable

    • 1 x 3 Connectors 39 Pin Hard Drive HDD ATA IDE Ribbon Cable
