SATA vs SATA II? Are SATA II compatible with A1260 MacBook Pro?

I have a cheap WD 500GB 7200rpm SATA II harddrive in mind. but i'm not sure if that's compatible with this model because on this site the harddrive names are (SATA)

I was wondering if SATAII harddrives can also be used with the logicboard??

I have a 2.4 GHz 15" MacBook Pro (Model A1260)

The SATA standart is backward compatible. You can easily fit that drive into your machine. It won't reach SATA II speeds though.

f you want to use some of the new 2.5" SATA hard disks in your MacBook (or Mac mini for that matter), you'll notice that they do not show up in Disk Utility, and that you cannot even format them. They will work externally as a USB device, but will not show up when used internally. That's because the newer drives are SATA II (or SATA 2) and their higher "transfer rates" are not compatible with the Intel ICH7-M AHCI (which only support up to 1.5 GHz) used in the MacBook and Mac mini.

To be able to use your new 250GB or even 320GB drive, you have to put a jumper on the two leftmost pins (when viewed from the front, meaning the other connector pins are on the right hand side).

This is how seagate drives should work... not sure about the implementation WD has.

E.g. If your computer (in my case macbook pro A1260) is limited to SATA 1.5Gb/s and you want to use your new SATA-II (SATA 2) then a jumper can make it compatible since I've heard of issues with running the 3.0Gb/s drives without it.
