Replacement HDD for Dell Latitude Laptop

Anyone know if I can replace the HDD in a Dell Latitude CP Laptop with any kind of 2.5" HDD??

Seems there may be a compatibility issue?

Don't know if any 2.5" Hdd will work in it, Dell laptops normally use IBM/HITACHI travel star 2.5" Hdd, I have both Dell Latitude and Inspiron Laptops and I have 6,20,and 60GB IBM/HITACHI 2.5" Hdd and swap between them. I have no problem whatsoever, hope this helps.

i emailed seagate and ask them which one they made for my Dell Inspiron, they replied within 2 hours, i ordered it online,then i had a query, which was all down to me, another email sent, had a reply, saying they were concerned they might have given me bad advice, which they had not, and they would be in touch within 24 hours, after they had spoken to the tecnical team, got the email, and they had sorted it all for me.

and ace company............

I've found this place here selling Dell parts - it's obviously a Travel Star but does anyone know exactly which one it is that will work? The laptop is a Latitude CP D233ST?
