  1. Hello,

    I'm replacing a friends laptop hard drive, everything went ok I bought a standard 2.5" disc from eBuyer, took out the old one and instead of the normal array of pins it was a large flat connector with no power input.

    What type of hard dsic is this?

    The old one was called an IBM somthing or other, (the label was ripped).

    Thanks!

    It is a 2.5" form factor SATA drive using the standard SATA connector.

    Nodsu,

    I wasnt aware you can get 2.5" SATA drives... Not here in Australia anyways.
