* Hard drives get confused again

Personal Stuff/Random News
As if the old UDMA/ATA stuff wasn't confusing enough, at least they used the same cables.

Now we get a different SATA connector:

With the introduction of the SATA II specification in mid 2004 a new external SATA connector was defined. These new external (eSATA) connectors are not compatible with the original internal SATA connection.

Currently there are add-on cards and drive housings available which feature both types of SATA connection for external use. Gradually the older types will disappear and all new SATA cards will feature the eSATA connector for external drive connections.
