    I need to find a replacement for this adaptor. It came off of an ATA-6 notebook HDD.
    It slips over the pins. And then the drive is inserted into the drive bay in the bottom of the notebook. The problem is that I don't know this things "real" name. As you can see from the picture. One of the plastic teeth is damaged.

    Thanks! :confused:

    That is actually a factory hard drive adapter.
    They are usually specific to the type of laptop
    that it came installed in.
    You might check Ebay or contact the laptop manufacturer.
    What is the laptop model?

    Thanks for your reply, It came out of an Acer TravelMate 270. I have seen these same adaptors used in different brands. They all looked identicle to this one. :)

    Exchange rate is more favourable than that at the moment.
    It is the equivalent of about $12.00
