Hello,My daughter has a Dell Inspiron 700m laptop (about 5 years old) with a 60GB Ultra ATA hard drive which is making ticking noise - I am sure it's failing.I want to replace the drive before it finally stops, I will Ghost the image of the (backed up) drive across to a new drive.Would a standard IDE drive such as this click here from CCL work?I have done a search but I am not sure of the differences.Thanks in advance.
At 5yrs old it will be an IDE drive I've just installed a 500gig one in my daughters 5yr old machine.
In practice, IDE = ATA = PATA = Ultra ATA.The one things these aren't is SATA (Serial ATA) which is different interface / controller technology.Ebuyer has a good selection of 2.5" IDE drives click here
Sorry did not read properly so not found 500gig lapyop one but yes to your question it will fit.
Would a standard IDE drive such as this click here from CCL work .....Yes.
Thank you, on my way to CCL right now.Cheers.
