SATA adapters for laptop dell d600

My dell laptop has an IDE connector for the 40gb hard drive. I would like to upgrade to 250gb by replacing the current hard drive with an HP 2.5inch Momentos which has SATA connectors. Where do I get adapters to be able to do this?? Please help

  1. There's really no way you can do that in a laptop. You're stuck with what the motherboard has on it. Your basically stuck with IDE. Not to mention that a laptop that old probably can only handle a certain size limit on hard drives and you would not see any performance differences, so you'd be wasting your money either way.

    My advice would be to buy an external hard drive to keep all of your stuff on or save up and buy a new laptop.

    I have the same laptop and I am considering a mid-range SSD 40GB (like an Intel 320 SSD) update. Do You know if the IDE to SSD converters like this one will work ?

  3. You may be able to get some of the micro sata to IDE to work, but realisticly not a good idea- you would have to buy a very small SSD ( physical size) 1.8 to make the adapter work, and even then I am not sure you could find one that would fit. also, A D600 is a very slow unit.
  4. This is a great laptop for the price. It functions beautifully for basic use. I have had absolutely no trouble with mine, and would highlyacclaim this product to accustomed users. The thin-and-light Latitude D600 series, based on the new Pentium M processor, marks the start of an ambitious new corporate look for Dell.
  5. Please am asking if there is any need for configuration coz mine is not detecting the hard drive
  6. thanks.based on the new Pentium M processor, marks the start of an ambitious new corporate look for Dell
