anyone know who stocks these .. rang around like 10 places and no one has them. even tried the laptop shop and they said they were v expensive, one store did say a SATA 1.8" HD cost like $500 for 100GB.


Cheers ....

cheers for that.

appears the IDE ones at least looks for a firmware match for "compatibility" :lol: and it might even be a hit and a miss after you traul thru upgrade/downgrade firmwares.

eBay has plenty thou, the same cannot be said to Trademe. Might just get ones which are a direct pull or a new part for the exact laptop model eh .....
