The Serial ATA dual port PCI Bracket installs into your PC as you would install any other PCI related card or bracket. However, the cable ends of the PCI bracket need to connect to either the SATA enabled mother board or SATA controller card within your PC. Clicking the image on the left will present a larger view of the SATA II ports and an outline of the connector port.
Because this is a dual port SATA PCI bracket, two available internal SATA port connections must be available to enable both ports on the bracket. Both ports however are independent of each other meaning if there is only one available SATA internal connector to connect to, then only one of the SATA PCI bracket ports would function.
This allows an external SATA device connection to be made from an internal source (the PCI controller card) by connecting the cable end of the single port SATA I or SATA II PCI bracket to the controller cards internal female connection.
