SATA 2 Drives work with SATA (1)
Authored by: cycomachead on Feb 25, '08 04:43:35PM

They are made to be backwards compatible-though I can't remember where I read that...

Anyways I have a first generation 2.0Ghz core duo MacBook from July 2006 (made May-Sept 06) and a bit ago I upgraded to a Hitachi 7k200 (200GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache) which is a SATA 2 Drive. The installation couldn't be simpler. I reformatted in Disk Utility from the install disk - the process was pretty fast (faster than my old 80GB) and everything has worked fine. NOTHING BUT a great expierence.
