New Hard Drive

  Condom 00:42 05 Nov 2008

I should probably know this but its late and my mind is doing a wobbly on me. I have just purchased a new Maxtor 500 GB SATA 2 hard drive which is going in a SATA 1 MOBO.

My memory tells me I need to set this up slightly differently re jumper settings but my mind has gone blank on me. The HD is not over helpful and its only hint re jumper settings is 1.5 Gb/s and 3Gb/s. I'm assuming the 1.5 is for SATA 1 and the 3 is for SATA 2 but can some of you fine gentlemen make the matter clearer for me.
