ATA133 on an ATA100 Board

By webmaster ·
Is it possible to use an ATA133 HDD on an ATA100 Motherboard? we just bought 4 ATA133 HDD's and the dell machine we are trying to install it to dosent recognise the drive, was just wondering if ATA 133 and 100 are incompatable with each other down the way.

Yeah the scsi option acn be costly if all new gear but some used gear is available and works OK.

19 HDDs I would have a hernia trying to keep straight what was what, having my 2 HDDs in 5 x 40GB is enough trouble for me.
