MDD, Sonnet Tempo and System Profiler

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My MDD (G4, Dual 1.25) has a Sonnet Tempo Serial ATA 2-Port that allows two serial ATA drives to be installed internally. I have one drive connected to it right now, yet System Profiler sees it not as a Serial-ATA drive, but as a regular ATA drive along with the other two ATA drives. Is this normal? Or should it be listed as a Serial ATA? If so, what do I need to do?

Thanks for any help.

DU shows the drives and space, but say nothing about SATA. The drives work fine.

Just as a note, I called MacSales yesterday and they said that it's normal for them to show up as regular ATA drives, so I guess I'm ok.

Thanks for the reply.

I bought the SIIG card from them, think mine actually say Serial ATA in the DU when you open the properties panel...

So I will defer to their judgement on this one.
