Want to repair our own computer (2nd for boys) and have to replace a Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8 40 GB ATA/133 7200 HD and we were looking on TigerDirect.ca and noticed what we thought was a compatible one by Seagate. Can any techie out there help us out and let us know if one on the website is the same.

Any advice?

You just have to make sure that you find another ATA drive. Don't get them confuse with a SATA drive. The cable plugin is not the same. As for the size of the drive anything will do.

Any questions PM me.

I build and repair computers for a living. If you want to save some shipping and extra tax, I will replace whatever you need for my cost. Just PM me if you need a hand
