    Given a Macbook Early 2009 (5,2)

    In the System profile the Superdrive appears under the Disc burning menu, and it says the connection is ATAPI (aka PATA).

    Code:
    MATSHITA DVD-R   UJ867A:
    
      Firmware Revision:	KK08
      Interconnect:	ATAPI
    But, it also apperas under the Serial-ATA menu.

    Code:
    NVidia MCP79 AHCI:
    
      Vendor:	NVidia
      Product:	MCP79 AHCI
      Link Speed:	3 Gigabit
      Negotiated Link Speed:	1.5 Gigabit
      Description:	AHCI Version 1.20 Supported
    
    MATSHITADVD-R   UJ867A:
    
      Model:	MATSHITADVD-R   UJ867A                  
      Revision:	KK08    
    So does it mean that I have a PATA Superdrive but it's connected through a SATA interface?
