    Hey guys & gals,

    Someone brought me a Dell Inspirion 1150 and it looks as if the HD is shot. (I reinserted the HD several times and it still would not recognize it) The HD is an Hitachi 08K0851 with UDMA 100. Does the replacement drive have to be UDMA100 ? ATA or IDE won't work ? I'm just looking for suitable replacement.


    Thanks,
    PostalBound

    That appears to be a bog standard 2.5" ATA 100 IDE drive.

    UDMA100 is an ATA-100 drive. :)
