For your question on SATA 3G
There are currently 3 versions of SATA interface.
revision 1.0 (SATA 1.5 Gbit/s(data transfer rate)
revision 2.0 (SATA 3 Gbit/s) (SATA 3G) Current in most of today’s PCs.
revision 3.0 (SATA 6 Gbit/s) (appears to be new format coming out in support of SSDD higher transfer rate ability)
Some systems get confused at multiple USB drives if they areturned onat the same time. This makes one or more not visible to the system, you wont see it/them on your “My Computer” screen. One way to avoid this, for the most part, is to turn on each drive after the PC recognizes the prior one.
My suggestion is that once you can afford one, add an additionalinternal HDD to your PC. Use your main HDD for OS and Programs and manage your files on the second one. The reason being that the HDD does not have to so much work with reading and writing and this lends to speeding up your processes.
