    ATA (only 1 T) is the standard for PC hard drives, CD and DVD drives. It uses 40-pin (40-connector) ribbon cable, but can also use 80-pin (still 40-connector) to get faster speed.

    To get even faster speed (and if your hardware supports it (hard drive and system board), you can use SATA, or Serial ATA, which will give you much faster speeds for hard drive access. SATA uses special cables that are NOT compatible with standard ATA hard drives.

    ATA drives are also known as PATA (Parallel ATA).
