    Can anyone tell me if switching my optical drives from IDE to Sata will give me better read and write speeds? thanks

    As was told to me earlier....

    Not enough to be worth the price difference.

    I happened to notice last night working on it, but my Memorex burner seems to have both IDE and SATA ports on the back.

    Nope, I can't imagine you seeing any measurable difference.

    What does the back look like? Like the photo 1 (IDE) below or photo 2 below (SATA)?
