proprietary HP dv6000 HD

    My HP dv6000 laptop came with a Fujitsu 120GB HD.

    I cloned the 120GB HD onto a Hatachi 320GB
    HD which I intended to swap with the original
    HD in the laptop. Then I discovered that HP was
    loaded with a HD which had a non-standard pin-out.

    Does there exist an adapter to go between the
    Hatachi & the dv6000?

    Does some simple option exist?

    Normally, (not sure in HP's case) there is an adapter that can be
    removed from the original drive and put on the new drive.

    HP uses standard drives. The drive on the dv6000 may be
    using a 2.5" IDE connector, which is different from a 3.5"
    IDE drive connector. The 320GB drive is probably SATA,
    and won't work in the dv6000.

    If the 120GB drive has a dual row of pins, almost the width of
    the drive it is IDE. IDE 2.5" laptop drives are available. The
    Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD3200BEVE is a 320GB 5400
    RPM 8MB cache laptop drive.

    I'm sure the dv6000 is SATA and he certainly would not mistake a 3.5"
    for a 2.5".
    My only knowledge of a SATA adapter is on a new Dell 1545. Pop it off
    and put it on the new one.

    My only knowledge of a SATA adapter is on a new Dell 1545. Pop it off
    and put it on the new one.

    I checked the dv6000 service manual. The 120GB drive is an
    ATA-5 drive. It looks like the motherboard connector is a
    standard 2.5" IDE socket. The drive connects vertically
    instead of end on, and there's what looks like a right angle
    adapter on the end of the drive. The OP never told us the
    make and model of the drive. There are seven drive sizes for
    the dv6000, from 40GB to 200GB, so I can't see HP stocking
    that many different drives with proprietary interfaces, but
    anything's possible.

    * AMD Turion 64, dual core processor
    * 2 GB DDR2 memory
    * 15.4″ WXGA High-Definition HP BrightView Widescreen Display
    (1280 x 800)
    * 256MB NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) Go 7200
    * 160GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
    * LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD+/-RW with Double Layer Support
    * 1.3 Megapixel Webcam with mic built into screen
    * Altec Lansing speakers built in
    * 3 USB ports, ExpressCard/54 Slot, Video Out, Integrated Consumer
    IR, 1 RJ-11, 1 RJ-45
    * Windows Vista Home Premium

    And 2 years old should be SATA

    The 120GB and lower are listed as 100MHz ATA-5 in the service
    manual, which is wrong. The 120GB drive is a SATA drive when the
    part number is referenced.
