When i bought it off Amazon it didn't specify it was the Quickview type, which is not lockable for soft modding. I am going to have to order a new HD, looking for IDE only and around 250 gigs, but i can be flexible on the size. Any recommendations on drives that work with no problems? Store links would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Most drives will work. I have 40gig samsung drive. Pretty much any drive that supports locking, also your brand preference. Major brands: toshiba/hitachi, samsung, WD, seagate.

You can check if your selected drive supports locking:

If you get a chance, hard mod it. It will have a higher compatibility rate with more HDD’s and you can add a SATA to IDE converter and get a 2TB SATA drive for the same price or even cheaper than the higher IDE drives. I also change out the 40 wire IDE cable for a 80 wire to make the data faster on the HDD.
