I am looking for a usb cable to connect my computer to a Toshiba HDD2D60 160MB hard drive that I took out of a dead laptop. I cannot find a cable to fit the 22-pin hard drive.

Hmmm, I presume that by "22-pin hard drive," you are referring to an IDE hard drive. A laptop IDE hard drive has two rows of 22 pins with one of the pins actually missing on the bottom row. This is used as a key to insure that the hard drive is installed properly. The Toshiba drive that you mentioned is a SATA drive which is based on completely different technology and will not work inside a laptop that uses IDE. As such, you have two items that are incompatible.

If what you want is something that will potentially allow you to use an IDE hard drive on a modern computer, then you can get an external 2.5-inch IDE enclosure and attach that by USB. These are easily found at places such as NewEgg ( ) and are fairly inexpensive with the more reliable units typically being around $15-20.

One word of caution, though: if you have a hard drive based on IDE technology, chances are that it is old, slow, and quite possibly already dead, so you may be wasting money on something that is not really worth your time.

Am replaceing the hard drive in my 05 e-2300 computer what hard drive should i use.

Any one you want. A 3,5 factor size HDD will work, but your specs call for an ATA, which is a IDE hard drive, you can't use a SATA drive.

The best place to buy one is called Newegg.

I will post a link for a drive that is ATA.

There are not to many to choose from, ATA is old, everything is SATA now. Go with a refurbished one or go with a larger captivity like 80gig.

I just posted this one as a reference so you know what you can get.

I think you bought a piece of junk especially if you cannot hear the hard drive spin when you connect the power supply.
I suggest you get a tech savy friend to check out this hard drive for you.

Hi guys, how important is the hard drive caddy? my father bought a presario v5000 from a garage sale. i found out that the hard drive caddy was missing and the hard drive in it was broken as well. will a...

OK look any drive, that's is the format, ie: STA or IDE? and that will fit will work, that 320GB will be OK. Simply install the HDD in the bay, and then use a windows installation disk, or similar to format it, just format it as ONE big partition, that should be fine, IF you find that it will not "See" the HDD, then partition it into smaller partitions. However you should be OK. You need to FIRST test to see if the actual PC is OK, try a HDD before you buy a new one, make sure that it is actually working.

My mac osx hard drive shows 127gb instead of 320gb

thats because a portion of your memory is used by what is already on your comp, progs and etc say a 80gig hard drive will only have about 74 gigs total this is normal.

Replacement of hard drive

Seagate has been the master of Hard Drives for along time. Most of the other manufacturers have sold out to other companies.

For the past four years an 80Gig (Gigabyte) hard drive was the norm, but in 2008 that changed and the price of a 180Gig or 250Gig drive is less than double the cost of a 80Gig drive.

Terrabyte drives will be the norm in three years, they're already selling in the Server industry as the norm.
