    no, it will not work. the interface is diffrent. newegg carries a 320gb IDE 2.5" drive which is what your looking for.

    hold this helps.

    You need an ata-6 or ultra ata drive (the one with a lot of pins as the interface). They are a little hard to come by these days, especially in anything over 100GB. Good luck

    many thanks guys. I wanted to go for a 320GB or higher but in this case i'll have to settle with a 250 GB one.

    thanks again for your help
