I own both a 1600 and a 2400. i have been thinking i should have a spare drive or two on the shelf, in anticipation for the day that mine crap out. I have replaced HDDs in towers a few times. I know there are detailed instructions on the forum, so I will print those out.

What i need is direction on what kinds/ makes models that are compatible. One source is old laptops, as others have previously advised.

how do i determine if the drive in an old laptop would work?

i recently have fallen heir to a couple of old machines and would like to strip the HDs if they would be functional as spares.

I'm also interested in the answer to this question with respect to the 1600.

If the drives are physically compatible (size and connector) I'd just give it a try. Given the fact that connector type and pinning protocol are linked, you can't harm anything.
