Any help would be great, Thanks Guys!

sorry to be the one to tell you this, but even if it works a 500MB HDD isn't even worth the postage it would cost to send it somewhere. Nowdays that's 1 program or less. You could try of course but don't go in expecting a lot

I noticed it was a pretty small space. But I have looked at ebay and i figure somebody on there will want it, not expecting a lot of $$ at all.
I am mostly looking just to get my feedback up so I can start selling big time.

I still need to know info on this hard drive though, any help...

Personally, I doubt anyone will buy this.

As there is so little info, what we provided above is about all you can provide.
