    Hi all

    My first post in this section. I need an 80GB+ IDE hard drive for a laptop I'm sorting out for my aunt.

    Presumably older Xbox360 drives will be fine but I'll need the bare drive and I'm not 100% sure they are ok.

    They will need to be 100% with SMART I will check this so please don't offer any drives with faults. I can get a new one pretty cheap (hopefully) so please bear this in mind when you price them.

    Here's hoping :) Thanks

    PS I have ebay feedback but here is the new heatware:

    How much you looking to spend?

    I might be able to order some for cheap from work.

    I'll check the 3 I have when I get home, I think they are a 120, an 80 and a 40GB, they are from 3 "redundant" laptops that I have lying around.......... hmmmm wonder if I can get one working lappy from the 3..... i will let you know later what is available and working (if any).

    I'd spend upto 20 quid including postage. Can pay by paypal. Depends on the size though, and I have a bid on something on ebay (before I posted this) so it'll be a couple of days to see if that wins.

    Thanks :)

    PS Tatty that sounds good let me know

    I can confirm I have an 80 and 120 spare, just don't know if they are working, I don't have a working laptop at home to test them but I do have a 2nd laptop at work I should be able to slot them into to try. I am out all day tomorrow and Wednesday though so I can't confirm either way before Thursday.

    I'm about to go get a tiny 30GB from CEX for an exorbitant price (ok I can trade in stuff but still :)) so please let me know if you have anything likely to work first ! Thanks,

    Dropped him a PM let's see.

    Might buy this anyway - what do you think of trading an old 160GB sata drive for a 30GB ide laptop drive? I can do it this morning so that's a bonus.
