Ok so heres the story.


I bought a CF-51 laptop with no hard drive. The caddy uses IDE and nothing else.

Heres the delema, I really need about a 500gb or so HD. I cannot find any 2.5" HD for IDE thats bigger then 320gb, and on top of that, i cant find anything higher then 5400rpm.

I would really like some help finding a 500gb or 320 min, for 2.5". 7200rpm would be a huge bonus but I don't even know if there are any.

Help is super appreciated.

Thanks for the replys, but as I stated, the laptop uses IDE HD's and cannot use SATA HD's...

hm... try some digging...
but dont expect to find anything too good
ide is kind of outdated...
they hardly ship anything with larger than 500 gb or faster than 5400 rpm even on sata...
but good luck!
