I'm hoping to upgrade my traditional hard drive to an ssd, but I don't know what connectors it uses, if someone could tell me that would be of great help, also if you have any recommendations, let me know, and anyone else who wants to do the same thing, Thanks!:apple:

It uses Ultra ATA, I think.

Is it possible to make an ultra ata to sata converter, will it still work, and which is better, i presumed sata, seeing it's newer technology

You don't have to make one, you can buy one, but I don't know if it'll fit physically in the powerbook.

yer sorry about that, i didn't mean make one, i've seen some people who have got ssds in their powerbooks, I just wondered if the ultra ata to sata convertor would fit so I could get into the market of the faster ssds, and more expensive unfortunately.lol.
