    Hey, I bought a new hard drive for my iBook from Western Digital, 120GB. Is it bad that it says "Enhanced IDE"? It should say ATA, shouldn't it? Cheers.

    ATA drives are enhanced IDE... as long as it's 2.5" P-ATA (and not SATA or SATA II), it should be fine.

    Thank you! It's listed as this one, and there's another almost identical listed as SATA, so I think I'm good. Cheers
