I was handed a Viao VGN-N365E. The hard drive has failed. There are no HDs listed specfically for the N365E. I was wondering if anyone knew if the hard drive replacements for the N365E/B can be used to replace the hard drives the base N365E? there are no HDs listed specfically for the N365E.

A hard drive is a hard drive. You just need a laptop hard drive.

Well...you need to get an drive with the proper connections. A SATA drive won't work for PATA/IDE connections...and vice versa.
