Yes, the Dell inspiron 600m uses the EIDE/PATA interface so your new drive should work fine.

Western digital wd2500bevt slave jumper settings


SATA drive position is determined by the plug on the motherboard, not a jumper. Jumper settings are for PATA drives (much older).

Install a partition manager program like

I want to make my WD1600AAJS hard drive a master hard drive, but the port is diffrent than my other hard drives. what do i do?


A SATA drive cannot be set to master or slave like a PATA drive can. SATA only allows one device per port. If the problem is that you don't have any SATA ports in your computer, you can get a SATA host adapter card for your system, update your motherboard to a motherboard with SATA ports, or get a PATA hard drive.

It makes that noise because something is wrong with that hard disk mechanically - you need to test it. Install in a pc this
http://www.hdtune.com/files/hdtune_255.exe   - it's free
connect the disk to that pc and launch the program - it will automatically detect it - and perform an error test on it.

FIND THE AGE OF LAPTOP


The D600 line was introduced in 2004. The only accurate way to find the exact age of your laptop, or the PRODUCTION DATE is to contact Dell. Otherwise you would only be able to find out the general date which was the 2004-2005 years. After that they moved on to the D6X0 lines...D630, etc as the processors improved. Some more info on your unit
Latitude D600
The D600 (and simultaneously-introduced D800) was Dell's first business-oriented notebook based on the Pentium-M processor; it used the first-generation "Banias" Pentium M chips running on a 400 MT/s FSB on DDR memory. It had a PATA hard drive and a D-series modular bay, and used an ATI GPU Radeon 9000. It had a 14" screen, in regular (non-widescreen) form factor. Unlike later D6x0 series machines, both memory sockets were accessible from a single cover on the bottom of the system.
Many Latitude models had a near-clone Inspiron, in the case of the D600, it was the Inspiron 600M. Differences include that the 600M does not work with the Dell D-Dock, and the case styling is slightly different. The motherboards, screens and hard drive caddies are all physically interchangeable
