Can I rest assured, then, that the PX716A should perform normally for me?
Many threads on this site mention SATA, not ATA, and I don't know the difference. I'm obviously concerned that one or more of the advertised facilities of the PX716A may not work with ATA.
So far all I have tried is DLA write/read with CD-RW and DVD+RW, it may be some time before I get around to Double Layer or DVD-R. If ATA is going to be a problem, I'd prefer to swap the drive now, while its almost new, for one that's fully compatible with ATA, rather than in several months time.
