Help needed: laptop HDD replacement
The hard drive on my neighbors hard drive bit the dust and I'm trying to replace it for him. The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite P25-???? I don't know the exact model and neither does he. I can't find the serial number for the laptop either.
Anyways, I know desktops in and out but have never messed with a laptop. Physically swapping the hard drives is easy but how do I know what kind of hard drive to buy? I looked at the specs for all Toshiba P25 models and the hard drives are either ATA-5 or ATA-6. How do I know which interface to purchase? Or is ATA-6 backwards compatible and I can just buy that interface? Also what company makes quality laptop HDD? I usually buy WD for my desktop builds.
Thanks in advance.
Here are some photos of the current drive in its bay if that helps.
