Looking at the board the serial connector looks like nothing but an adapter plugging into the PATA port for the IDE drive, it is going into the same channel still, and should still be shared with the rom drive. It is just adaptor for a serial drive to click in. Do people who bought serial drives have anything to compare burn times against, because I really dont see how they are seeing any performance increase unless it is just the more highly optimized serial drive doing its work. I guess it is possible maybe one side of the onboard connector is serial and the other PATA and it Ys off to the serial and PATA chipset...can anyone confirm this?
