I would like to know if the wiring to conect a liteon model xj-hd166s is the same as for an hp model xj-hd166s I have an older comp. and I can find a lite on model but not the hp model and would like to replace it with the liteon version
The HP model is an IDE, any model with IDE spec. will connect to the same wires and you have a large variety to choose from. Memorex drives used to be fast and long lasting, LG is good too, Liteon makes a variety but tray life is not very long. Click for Specs. in description and look for IDE connection.
