    Hi,

    I've got a friend who has a compaq armada 1500 (approx. 6 yrs old) which i believe has a dead hdd. however, upon dismantling and inspection of the hdd, i noticed that the connection of this hdd is not the common pins like most hdd's but more like a centronics connector (scsi maybe?).

    if someone could possibly inform me of the correct term for this type of connection, it would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Regards
    Steve

    Hi,

    Just found out that i've got a "hdd caddy connector" on the end of the hdd. thus, i just need to remove the caddy connector and put in on the new hdd..

    A description is of this hdd caddy connector is:

    one side is female for the hdd pins while the other side is a female connector that slots onto a male board.. (looks like centronics connector - parallel cable, the side that connects to the printer).

    thanks for your input

    Sounds good. I'd really like a 40 gig for the old beast (that still runs fine), but I'm too afraid the thing would give out right after I bought it. But then I could always use the drive somewhere else, even on a desktop with an adapter.

    Thanks for your followup.
