The difference between SATA1 and SATA2 drives is the bandwidth(transfer speed).
SATA1 drives can transfer data at a rate of 1.5GB/S
SATA2 drives can transfer data at a rate of 3.0GB/S
The drives are interchangeable meaning it is possible to install a SATA2 drive
in a SATA1 motherboard and it will work but will only function as
a SATA1 drive. You can also plug a SATA1 into a SATA2 motherboard. GOOD LUCK!!!!!
