    It should do.. You would need to disable SATA II (a jumper on the drive) but yes I see no reason why it wouldn't work.

    And what in case I don't disable SATA II? Will be a problem?

    Seriously consider your backup strategy if you're going to put a drive this size inside your machine.

    Note that Time Machine prefers to see a backup drive at least twice the size of the drive being backed up. It'll work with less, but suboptimally.

    Time machine Backups would not be an issue as I would be using a three disk strategy (External drives). One disk for SD films, one for HD films and the final disk (Time Machine) for everything else, which at the moment comes in at a little less than 300GB.
