I just bought a Hitachia Travelstar 5k160 Sata notebook harddrive. I put it on the bracket and attempted to slide it back into the harddrive slot. It won't go all the way in. The instructions I was reading said it should not require much force. Any suggestions?

The simple and obvious are ofttimes overlooked by even the best. Make sure you have the drive in the bracket the correct way. You don't say what kind of machine you have - MacBook, MacBook Pro - so I can only guess. I recently switched my hard drive in my MacBook, and it went in fine without a problem.
