Default Mundane SATA question

Would there be any complications putting a SATA 300 drive into a computer made for SATA 150?

you may have to make sure that drive doesnt need the jumpers set, some of them wont operate on 150 without the jumpers set correctly

Indeed. as i found out just after xmas.

The manual did not say anything about jumpers, so I just put the jumper in the middle, and it worked


good luck
