Question about Dell Latitude C600 Notebook
I am replacing a hard drive on a Dell Latitude C600 laptop.
The adapter on the old dell drive has a plug (blank) in one of the hdd pin holes because a pin is missing as the new drive has all the pins in place...thus...the adapter will not slide on because of the adapter plug. How do you remove the plug from the adapter? I just don;t want to damage anything trying to force it off.
It resembles the plug on an ide cable or floppy cable for a PC.
I have never seen a 2.5" drive without the missing pin. It is there to ensure the drive is not connected upside down. I think I would return the new drive if all pins are there. If I couldn't return it then I would think about cutting the unwanted pin after very careful counting.
