My System Specs


I believe something like this may work. I would pull out my hard drive and carry it off to the retailer for comparison before purchasing though.
Oh, googled and found this.
Q: Is a ATA100/133 drive backwards compatible?
A: Yes. All ATA drives are backwards compatible with PIO/DMA/ATA33/66/100. Just bear in mind that you will be limited to the slowest component, and older motherboards/systems often have inherent capacity limitations. e.g. Motherboards of Pentium 2 vintage (ATA33) often cannot handle drives over 33.8Gb (BIOS limitation).
What processor do you have? You may have to find a used unit on fleabay. Another alternative is to go to a external harddrive.
