I want to put a new hard drive in my Toshiba laptop (Satallite A100-386).
The present drive, a Toshiba HDD2D30 is listed as a 100 GB Sata 150 drive.
But the connector doesn't look like what I would expect a Sata connector
to be like (i.e a 7pins).
Instead it has two flat insertion type connectors, one with seven
contacts and the other with 15.
Are connectors like this standard? - i.e can I go ahead and simply order
a 2.5 inch Sata drive ? Or are there several different types of
connectors for the Sata interface?
