The answers to this question are 1 and 3, SATA and PATA. There was a time when the only way that you can enjoy songs and some movies is by having the right drive and these two interfaces made things possible.

Things may be different now and people surely use other devices in order to watch and listen to their favorites but it cannot be denied that those interfaces surely made some changes that makes listening and watching easier to do right now. The SATA is a high speed model interface that was used by a lot of blu-ray drives. The other choices were used for other things such as data printing.

Sata-2. pata-sata and pata are the two correct answers, (ata/ide) is the 40-pin interface used by most cd and dvd drives and a few early blu-ray drives. sata is the seven-pin high-speed serial interface used by late-model high-performance dvd drives and most blu-ray drives. pata and sata are also used by hard disks and some types of removable-media drives. irda is an infrared (ir) interface used for line-of-sight printing and data transport between some computers (mostly older laptops) and printers. usb (universal serial bus) is used for almost all external devices, from printers and multifunction devices to hard disks, optical drives, and flash memory devices. although some usb adapter cards feature a single internal port, that port is intended for use by drive-bay mounted usb hubs or card readers.
