Ok cobra...doesnt know anything
You motherboard has to be sata onboard compliant. If it isnt you can buy a SATA card to slot into a PCI slot for around £15. And the cables for that are like £1 from ebuyer.com.
if you have a motherboard book i suggest checking it about sata abilities to check if u have it or not and need to buy a card.
You easiest opt would be to return it and get a IDE drive and you wont have much ahsstles.
