ATA HD question

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Im have B&W G3 and am thinking of putting a new internal HD in it. It has a 33 bus in it, will a 133 ATA HD or higher work at all ? Will the factory bus speed have any problems with a faster HD?

    The drive should be backward compatible and reduce its speed to 33 to match the system bus.

    It will work fine, however you may have issues with the size of the drive. If it's larger than 128GB (I think...), you won't be able to use all of it.
