Some CD bay to 2.5" adapters come with a 3-mode switch to help with "compatibility".
In some cases the 3 positions are labeled with specific manufacturer names, like HP, IBM, Dell...

Any idea what's up with that? I thought SATA is SATA.

HP, IBM, DELL, ACER, have heard of standards, they don't follow them, but they HAVE heard of them... :D
