Re: Does Linux support powering down SATA drives?

I would agree with your view on IDE becoming obsolete on hard drives,
but I as yet, am not aware of any CD/DVD drives with a SATA interface.
They are still uncommon, but do exist. I suspect part of the reason is
that the advantages of SATA aren't as compelling for optical drives, and
not everybody has a machine that supports SATA.
As pointed out, the XBox 360 uses an SATA DVD-ROM drive..
