advice concerning an extra harddrive

  aine 20:00 30 Nov 2008

My present harddrive is a WDC25 OOJS-75NCB3.I wish to fit a extra harddrive in the spare drive bay. According to the spec Manuel it is a 7pin?, i have searched on the W Kingston site but nowhere does it talk of the amount of pins? Could someone please help and explain what this all means? Regards Aine

If it states 7 pin its probably a SATA HDD there referencing .

A SATA cable has 7 wires,where a PATA/IDE has 40/80.
