    I think it would help me if you defined what SATA stands for.

SATA – Often abbreviated SATA or
S-ATA, an evolution of the Parallel ATA physical storage interface.
Serial ATA is a serial link -- a single cable with a minimum of four
wires creates a point-to-point connection between devices. Transfer
rates for Serial ATA begin at 150 MBps and SATA II 300MBps. One of the
main design advantages of Serial ATA is that the thinner serial cables
facilitate more efficient airflow inside a form factor and also allow
for smaller chassis designs. In contrast, IDE cables used in parallel
ATA systems are bulkier than Serial ATA cables and can only extend to
40cm long, while Serial ATA cables can extend up to one meter. 

       Serial ATA supports all ATA and  ATAPI devices .
