    None that I'm aware of.

    How big is your current drive? Is it SATA or IDE (probably SATA but need to know for sure)?

    You can order one off the internet for a decent price. I buy lots of stuff from, or

    I would recommend a minimum 250GB SATA 7200RPM drive.

    Old one's 320GB Sister's 160GB. What's a good HDD for me? I don't know what to chose. I have a 2.5 Inch SATA drive.
