I am afraid he will have to open the box, since for a year now (or more, 
I do not remember), ATA devices are labelled as ScSI.
So the ATA/SCSI world is not that simple, anymore.

For example, this is
what my system shows, which is FULLY ATA:

eberhard at grey:~$ mount
/dev/sda1 on / type ext3 (rw,relatime,errors=remount-ro)
/dev/sda5 on /home type ext3 (rw,relatime)
/dev/sda6 on /space type ext3 (rw,relatime)
/dev/sda2 on /media/Drive_D type fuseblk 

kind regards
