the maxtor 7Y250MO has a 5 year guarentee how long have you had it.if less than 5 years contact seagate/maxtor via their web.

The maxtor 7Y250MO is a IDE hard drive. The HDP7258050GLA360 is a SATA hard drive, as you say. So they are totally different.

Unless you have SATA connecters on your motherboard, you need to change the drive for an IDE one.
