Interface and media type are completely independent. You can have SATA
DVD, SSD, hard drives, Blue Ray, magnetic tape drives, etc.. You can
have SAS DVD, SSD, hard drives, Blue Ray,tape drives, etc.. You can have
USB DVD, SSD, hard drives, Blue Ray, magnetic tape drives, etc..
That a drive uses a SATA interface tells you *nothing* about the
physical media itself.
You are making a category error. It is as if you claimed a laptop was
fundamentally different because you were using it with a 230V AC to DC
power adaptor instead of a 120V AC to DC power adaptor.

or 'a SSD drive *with a SATA interface*'.
