versions of ATA
Hey guys, I have a sony PCG-R505EL, and for a while now my hard drive has been grinding and making all kinds of terrible noises, finally today the SOB crashed, now my computer will not recognize the drive at all. So now I'm looking into buying a new hard drive. The old one is an IBM travelstar that is a ATA-5. Now I am looking at a different hard drive, a Samsung hard drive, but it says that it's ATA-100. Can I use the ATA-100? or is it not compatible? I use a Pentium III M. Thanks alot.
