I'm not quite sure where to put this topic but it involves hardware, so here goes...
I want to buy an .avi 2.5" SATA Media Player, that you can use as an External disk drive and you can plug it into the TV to watch your camcorder made movies or photos.
I have found one on Ebay but you need to install your own hard disk drive and I have two spare: IDE/ATA or PATA from my old laptops.
The question is, on the product description it says it supports SATA I and SATA II Large Capacity SATA Drive, so would I still be able to install an older hard drive? The seller doesn't seem to know and I don't really understand the differences or whether they are backwards compatible like the USB 2.0 and previous or something.
I would be very grateful for any replies and advice!
Thanks in advance.
