Will My WD2500BEVE Work in my unibody Macbook??

Hi

I had an old 15" Powerbook G4 in which I upgraded the drive to a Western Digital 250g Drive (model WD2500BEVE) and It got some water damage which rendered the motherboard useless.

I want to put the drive from this computer into my Macbook Unibody 13" and I'm wondering if this hard drive is compatible? (assuming the hard drive is in working order)

I would like to use this drive so that its not just sitting around gathering dust.

Thanks in advance.

Joe.

Powerbooks used IDE/PATA drives. The uni-MB uses SATA. So no. But you can get an case for it and use it as an external.

Make sure the case you get will take the 2.5" IED/PATA type drive.
