Is it possible to replace a Seagate hard drive with a Western Digital hard drive?

by on June 7, 2011

Q: I would like to replace a Segate 7200.9,200 GB hard
drive with a Western Digital caviar black unit of 500
GB to 2 TB.
Is this dooable, regarding the pin connections, or
would you suggest someting else. I have been told
this is the best way to go. The computer ( an ’08)
was used for a year before it was given to me in April,
at which time I upgraded the RAM to 1 G. This seems
a very short lifespan for a barracuda unit. Help, Please
Spahky.

    Your hard drive should still be under warranty, most of these have a 3 to 5 year warranty.

    Otherwise, if needed the Western Digital drive should work fine as a replacement.
