I know that.
My hard drive is ATA 100 interface, but it then gets connected to a type of convertor and then onto the motherboard. im wanting to know what interface this connector is, so i can try and get a SATA hard drive and a sata to this unknown interface connector.

what's the point of getting sata? its still going to bottleneck after it runs through the convertor.

i'm unsure on the interface type. looks like ide, but it just doesn't feel like the right answer. count the pins? lol
