Hi
I meet a problem
I bought a WD HDD (WD2500AAKX) with SATA3 connection but my motherboard chipset only supports SATA1.
The question is: how to set jumpers and to slow down speed at 1.5 Gbps?
On the HDD is saying that Jumper on Pin 5-6 slow down to 3 Gbps.
When i connect the HDD, the BIOS doesn't see it.
And all over the internet it saying that SATA3 is compatible with SATA1 chipset

thanks in advance :)

What motherboard and version of BIOS do you have?
