|Is it an internal laptop (2.5") drive, or an internal desktop (3.5") drive, |
or an external 2.5" drive, or an external 3.5" drive??
If it's an external drive, see my answers in this Topic:
His hard drive inside the external drive is probably 3.5" - it's relatively tougher and less likely damaged to be damaged than than a 2.5" drive.
