I have a AsRock K7S41GX motherboard, and i was looking at a seagate 400GB internal hard drive upgrade kit, ultra ata/100, 7200 RPM, 16 MB Cache.... Will this hard drive work with my motherboard, i cant seem to figure it out. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated :D Thanx in advance :wink:

Ultra ATA is IDE. ATA100 and ATA133 are IDE.

Point me to where it says they are not compatible

Ultra ATA/33, Ultra ATA/66, Ultra ATA/100 are all IDE cconnections
Ultra ATA/133 is a SATA connection

Hmm. I guess the difinitive answer would be just to look for IDE or SATA in the description. Maybe ATA/133 is it both?
