need drives

Post by KPJL FM » Wed May 04, 2016 7:38 am

Anyone have some old 2.5" IDE laptop drives laying around? I have a need for 4 to 6 of them, size 10 gig or better.

I just had my recycler come yesterday and take all our dated gear away. I'll do some digging to see if I can unearth any.

I've got a bunch of them in the 80-320 GB range but they are 1100 miles away at the moment so I can't give you an accurate list, and won't be able to get to them for another couple weeks.

I have one in the pile, IDE 80Gb, pulled from a HP laptop. I'd be happy to drop it in the mail if you want it. Just PM me your info.

I've checked my pile and I've already jettisoned my older drive. Sorry I can help you out.

Way back in the day there was Capital Resource and Recovery which sold older computer parts. They are no longer around anymore but I did find PacificGeek and Discount Computer Depot still has some parts. Or a google search for computer recycling and the town, most sell parts.
