I have an A50 Model 8085-24U. Original drive was an 80GB ATA/133 HDD. (Lenovo shows 80GB 7200RPM IDE HDD under Support & downloads) I purchased a 160GB ATA 7200.12 to replace it.
Cables/connections do not match. Any suggestions?
They only list ATA100 hard drives under Accessories - Storage - ThinkCentre A50
Novice - frustrated, etc......

Does Your new hard drive have 39 or 40 pins in the main group where the cable plugs in? Does it say ATA or S ATA on the packaging that the new hard drive came in? Finally are both the old and new hard drives the same width?
