    Which Hard Drive??

    I was curious as to which notebook hard drives are compatible with the SV24 Motherboard because a friend of mine told me that sometimes the notebook to IDE adapter doesn't always work with all hard drives and motherboards.. so which notebook hard drives do you guys prefer to use with your SV24's?

    IMHO Toshiba makes the best laptop drive on the market.

    But thats IMHO.

    I'm interested in why this would be, as all the adaptor does is change the size of the plug. I've never had a problem with laptop hard drives, and compatibility yet.
    And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows?

    Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)

    IBM's work good for me, have a 1997 vintage 3g from my older laptop that I carried with me everywhere and was on 24/7 in my player.

    You shouldn't have a problem using a notebook HD on any desktop. All the adapter does is change the plug itself. I am thinking that your friend had his/her jumpers wrong.

    Even if you will not connect it right it's just not going to work. The only drawback I have seen in laptop drives is that they are 4500 rpm.
