I have just added an old PATA/IDE HDD to my computer for backup storage space. It all seems to be running fine but when i got to device manager > 'Disc Drives' and click on 'properties' for each individual HDD it displays the added old PATA HDD Location as: 'Location 1 (Secondary ATA Channel)' and my SATA HDD with my OS etc as 'Location 0 (Primary ATA Channel)'
I also have 2 identical additionl HDDs both SATA connected, and it displays one as PATA and the other as SATA?
So I have 3 SATA connected, only one shows SATA and two PATA... and one PATA connected showing SATA!
(Hope this is not too draining to read thru!!)
Any ideas? Am i getting propper SATA speed from my primary OS HDD?
