No.


T42 needs a PATA drive, not a SATA one.


Some choices here:

Hope this helps.

Re: replacement hard drive for T42

Thank you.  When I go to http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductList3.jsp, I did  a search on PATA and hard drives.  Do any of these work for a T42?  Thanks again for your help.

Re: replacement hard drive for T42

Also, I did a search on Newegg for PATA and came up with the following, all "ATA-6".  Is that compatible or equivalent to PATA?

 

Thank you!

ATA-6 is equivalent of PATA or IDE.


Any 9.5mm/2.5" laptop hard disk drive in the above format - regardless whether one refers to it as PATA/IDE/ATA-6 - will work fine in a T42.


Good luck.

Cheers,

George
