Not that long ago it used to be simple and you only had to worry about IDE and SCSI hard drives.
Now there are ATA, PATA, SATA and I am hopelessly confused.
I accidently purchased a SATA hard drive of ebay not realising the interface was different. Only paid $30 or so but still.
Now I am looking specifically for what I know as a standard IDE hard drive, but some are labelled IDE/PATA/ATA.
Some adds for 250GB plus hard drives say that they are best suited to video recording devices.
I have a pentium IV.
What friggin hard drive in the range 200-400GB is going to be compatible with my PC??????
