  • Notebook Hard Drives

    Ok, I know this might sound like a strange and stupid question.

    I have never owned or seen the inner workings of a laptop computer before (can you believe it??). Do laptop harddrives connect the same way as desktop harddrives?

    As in 40 Pin IDE connectors?

        Is there a 44pin wire? I have biscuit pc with a 44pin header and am looking to get a laptop harddrive for it. Can't seem to find any wires though?

          44 Pin is standard laptop! What do you mean wires? I have a 1 gig hooked up to a sbc with a normal 2.5 inch ide cable...
