View Full Version : What type of hard drive should I buy?

Hey everyone! I'm thinking about buying a new hard drive to store all my songs. The hard drive I have now is an IDE type. I have seen lots of SATA hard drives around and I know that a SATA cable came with my mother board. I don't really know the difference or which is better in ubuntu. What do you guys think would be the best kind to get? Thanks

Go with the SATA, it's faster.

Thanks. Does SATA need anything special to work on ubuntu and will it work alongside my IDE one?

Should work just fine afaik, mine didn't need any special setup or anything.
