Re: Sata II jumper selections
If the majority of hte actual data transfers are small, you won't see significant difference. The 3 GB position is to enable higher transfer rates which will only be noticed when transferring large amounts of data at a time. If you are doing video processing the higher rate should provide better overall performance.

Assuming you have a Asus A8N-VM CSM GeForce 6150 Motherboard then if you have a SATA cable that works for that or an adapter for the SATA II if it wont fit it should be fine and you can have both in at once. So there would be no need to transfer but if you want you could.
If im not getting this please let me know and I will try to help you more.
You have to go online and search then download the drivers for preparing SATA laptop harddrives for installation of Windows XP otherwise during installation it will tell you there is no hard drive found.
All you need is a SATA cable. Can be bought anywhere PC parts are sold or on eBay. You can use the screws from your old hard drive. The SATA drive will only work if your motherboard is current. Older M/Bs only accept IDE drives.
Update: SATA II drives do have jumpers to make them backwards compatible with 1.5 Gb/s (SATA II drives are 3.0 Gb/s). So if your system is older and can only handle SATA (first Gen) then you have to add a jumper (Seagate has the jumper setting on the drive but sometimes supplies no jumper i.e. you have to have your own).
