    I know this is a long shot for the MR forums, but here goes:

    I have my old HD from my Dell POS E510. The drive is a Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 (SATA). THe problem is that it doesn't fit in the two hard drive cases I currently have, so I need to buy a new one.

    There are several hookup configurations it seems for SATA Power/Signal and Jumper Block. How do I know which one to buy? Is there a site that matches serials numbers with case models?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

    I've experienced problems with Seagate Barracuda drives not fitting properly into internal drive cages before but never with an external case, it's worth noting the only external case I use is the Vantec NexStar 3 line of cases http://www.vantecusa.com/front/product/pro_list/74

    As for a site that matches SN to compatible cases I have no idea.

    +1 on the Vantec case; I moved my SATA HDD from my (now dead) pc to the nexstar case and it fits and works like a charm with my iMac. My only complaint would be the power cord is kinda short but no biggie.
