Hello there, I have a probably simple question, but I feel like second-guessing myself, just to be sure. I intend to buy a 250GB Seagate Sata Hard-Drive tomorrow, to complement the 80GB Maxtor drive I already have. I wish to have the new hard-drive purely for extra storage (of downloads etc.), so I don't have any desire, as far as i know, for using RAID. My motherboard seems all set up to support the drive (nForce 4 A8N-E) but it is the (minimal) co-operation with the older HDD that causes me to wonder. Basically, I want to know is there's any foreseeable problem with me using a PATA drive (as the master of my 2 dvd drives, and previously another hdd that died, but I want this new drive to fill the role in much the same way) along with a SATA drive, which as far as I know, doesn't deal with the master/slave stuff? That difference shouldn't cause me a problem, should it? I'm quite new to this SATA stuff, as you can no doubt tell. Thanks for any replies.
