Old hdd bought cheap ? What size ? How to use it(ide not sata) ?

People on ebay had removed all hdd from their stripped laptops to try for more money by selling in parts.

This strategy actually backfires, because the market will have too many small hdd to absorb. The smallest hdd that can still be used in laptop is 4 gB. Ebay has them about $6.

To use these ide hdd typically wiped clean and been tested good. But if you put them in the laptop, you need partitioning to be recognized by the computer. In most operating system installation process, partition is done before operating system is formatted and installed by copying on the hdd.

To save money, you can buy the 4 gB size, or 6 gB or 10 gB.
