Hi, what has your experience been with upgrading a IDE HDD with laptops? You cannot just buy the largest HDD and expect it to work right? Is it trial and error?

I think most hdds now are sata. I think hard drive upgrades should just work, unless the bios does not recognise the larger sized hdds.

Cheers bud ..

I hit a brick wall - it's a IDE HDD but ... it's a 1.8" HDD, Ascent and I presume others do not carry at all ....
