Hi peeps.
Don't know if you can help. Hope someone can.
I had a old Fujitsu amilo d7850 that I removed the Hard drive from a year or So ago to get rid of. I have now decided to get it up and running again. I researched what sort of drive I needed and ordered a IDE drive. Trouble is it will not fit. It seems as if the pins on The new drive will not go into the connector on The laptop. Am I doing something wrong and do I need some sort of ribbon or adaptor? Also it seems as if there are too many pins on The drive. Help please.
