Where can I buy a new hard drive for a Sony Vaio VPCSC?

Amazon and eBay are usually good sources for computer parts. Once you know whether it's an IDE or SATA drive you should be able to find something compatible.

Changing hard drive on D600 pin configuration is different. It's supposed to be compatible, but it doesn't work

The D600 has a IDE hard drive that has two rows of pins. The only other drive for a laptop is a SATA which does not have any pins sticking out but has 2 sockets. The D600 has an adapter that goes over the pins before you install in the caddy. I do not know what you are looking at so please give me the model numbers of the two drives and I will solve the issue for you.

D600 looks like this:

Adapter looks like this:

Can i use my ibm hard drive in a gateway pc

Laptop hard drives are compatible to any laptops as long as the connectors are the same. ATA to ATA or SATA to SATA.

If your IBM hard drive is a laptop hard drive, it will not be compatible with a desktop. Desktop hard drives are 3.5 inches in size while notebooks or laptop hard drives come in 2.5 inches.

Hope this helps.

I need to attached my hard drive of My toshiba laptop 2455-S305 to an external IDE enclosure so I can download the files from it to another computer. The one I bought, External IDE Enclosure High speed...

OK it seems as though you have an IDE - USB dongle. What you need is a SATA - USB dongle. It appears that the drive you have is SATA, you will know this as there is only a small connector for tha Data and Power Plug. The IDE is a wide multi pinned socket with a large 4 pin Power Connector.
I have included a link to Ebay so you can see what you need. as in the USB to SATA dongle.
You need to get one such as this to connect to your drive.

Hard drive

Sounds like your hard drive is toast but £145 for sony to replace it sounds expensive, you should just be able to replace it with any 2.5" internal sata drive
here is an example of one

That one is about £80 but im sure you can find cheaper, the best news is that replacing the drive doen't void your warranty which is good, here is a link to really good guide for replacing your ps3 hard drive
good luck, let me know how you get on

Ps3 hard drive

Yes, the hard drives can be swapped out. They do have to be the same type though.
Seagate SATA 2.5" hard drive
If you go with a different brand you may have compatibility issues.
