I have a question about a hard drive.  Mine is going on five years old,
and I'm sure it won't last much longer.

In Device Manager, my hard drive is listed as SCSI, but I know it's an
SATA drive.  I just wonder why it doesn't show up as an SATA?

The hard drive is a Hitachi hdp725025gla380

I'm going to replace it with a 500Gb 7200 RPM hard drive.

MY hard drive is a SATA 1.5, and I notice the new drives are SATA 3,
Will that be a problem?
