General discussion

To Steve1776

I believe you have already been pointed in the right direction in a previous, identical, post.

This forum is not a swap meet, junk sale, flea market or a bring and buy.

While we would be more than happy to help you with your problem, the lack of information given as to why you need an identical, or close to, drive has not been discussed.

If you would care to elaborate on your problem, we would be happy to help.

Something along the lines of:

Hi, I have a (insert type of Mac here) which was running (insert version of OS here).
The HD crashed and the tech helping me thinks I should get an identical drive to replace the old one.

Is it necessary to get an "Apple" drive or will any IDE or SCSI (delete as applicable) work?

Try that and see if you get any responses.

Meanwhile, you post is deleted
