I have a laptop and am trying to figure out if my disc drive is a SATA or not without opening it.

Is there a way to find out? I looked at Computer Management, but I can't tell if my drive is SATA or not:

Yes, it is SATA. The ST910021AS corresponds to the model of the drive, which can be found here.
