I posted a message some days back that hard disk crashed ..and asking what were my options.. well finally I need to replace the disk
Now iam planning t buy a new drive and i am told by Dell suppprt that I can only replace with a ATA IDE drive of 5400 rpm and max 60Gb capacity. However i am not very convinced by this.
So I ask all you genius out there.. to please help me find alternatives.
1) can i buy more capacity disk ? does it really matter what size disc I fit in ?
2) I understand that i need to use only ata ide drives not sata but is rpm a restriction ? can i not go for a higer speed drve ? like a 7200 ?
3) most importantly... your suggestion on which make to buy ! currently the crashed one is a hitachi travelstar model. are there any better ones ?
waiting for your suggestions..
thanks in advance.
