    what's the difference between Serial ATA and Ultra ATA?

    I have an Ultra ATA hdd, which i took out of my Sky+ box now looking for an enclosure for it. Would a SATA enclosure be ok for this HDD.

    Is SATA same as IDE??

    As mentioned by Plum, not compatible. See picture below for the physical difference.

    PATA = IDE
