Upgrading Hard-Drive need new jumpers?
I am mourning the death of a hard-drive, and shopping for a new one.
My motherboard accepts Serial ATA Controllers and lists its inputs as follows :
Serial ATA Controller: 2 Serial ATA-150 controllers support 2 SATA-150 disk drives.
The new drive I am looking at is a Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
It is my understanding that the 3.0Gb/s jumper will be incompatible with the 150s currently installed.
Is this a problem? Will the existing jumpers work correctly with the newer, faster disk drive?
And if not, how easy is it to replace or upgrade to the faster 3.0Gb jumpers? Is this a pricey upgrade?
I appreciate any and all insight.
Thanks in advance for your help.
