MDD, Sonnet Tempo and System Profiler

Posted:
in Genius Bar edited January 2014
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.
