  1. I just ordered a new Hard Drive from an On-line computer parts store and didn't know there were different ribbon cable connection types for them. The one I bought has 2 blade connections and my ribbon cable and the drive already in the computer are pin. Is there an addapter? The site I got the drive from clearly states that this drive can only be returned for the same brand and model.

    Sounds like you bought a SATA hard drive instead of an IDE one. there are adapters just do a search for Sata to IDE adapters.
