Hello-

I was going to help my sister upgrade her powerbook when she comes home for Thanksgiving. I looked on Apple's site and the 1GHz machine that she has currently has a ATA-66 (ATA-5) drive in it. I wanted to purchase a 100GB drive for her, but they all seem to be ATA-6.

Will this pose any problems?

Thanks in advance.

with more searching on Google, I found that the ATA-6 drives are all backward compatible (as I assumed they would be).
