I have an older machine and am running Windows ME. I want to purchase a new hard drive to upgrade the old one I have.  My system says I have a "Generec IDE Disk Type47".  It's only 10gig. I would like to upgrade to a 60 or 80 gig.  Does anyone have a suggestion of what kind I will need to buy and where at.

Thanks

Hi Bruce
I do some purchasing from NewEgg their prices seem to be pretty reasonable.
Western Digital, Seagate and Maxtor are all pretty good brands.

If you're like me, and you like really quite equipment, you might want to try the Seagate Barracuda IV series. IIRC, the OEM versions which end in model number 301 (not the 103) is extremely quiet. Oh, and Seagate started offering a 5-year warranty on most newer models again.
Many of the competition do not.
