    Hard Drive upgrade
    My friend ordered a new 100 gig drive for his laptop, and he doesn't know what to do with the 40 gig. He offered to just give it to me, but I don't know if it will work.

    I have an iBook G3 500MHZ, 10 gig drive. Its the original 10 gig; are iBook G3s SATA or ATA-6? The drive my friend is giving me is ATA-6, so can I put it in my iBook or will I have to get a SATA drive?

    Your current hard drive is ATA. The new one should work.

    SATA in laptops is a fairly new thing.

    Thanks! For some reason my friend told me mine was SATA. Maybe he was thinking of the MacBook, since he wants one so bad.

    MacBook and MacBook Pros were the first apple notebooks that used SATA.
