No such animal as far as I know. They do have some that have both 4 pin molex and SATA power connectors on them.

you can turn a PATA HDD into a SATA HDD via a bridge, there is no reason to have both ports. there also wouldnt be enough room

No such things exist. Hard drives will have one single bandwith speed, and it matches the one of the interface. No such thing as Parallel and serial on one drive. He's sure smoking some good one, I'm with Atomic Rooster.

Wink Re: anyone ever seen a hdd...

there was no display, the hard drives were just sitting out (at a thrift store, most of the items are used and have no packaging), he picked them up and looked at them, he swears to this day that he saw an IDE connection where it should've been, but on the front of the hdd there was a SATA connection as well, he has a SATA and IDE hdd in his computer, so he knows the difference...

and no, he doesn't "smoke", but he does smoke cigarettes...
