I have an old Dell Latitude D610 laptop. There was a disk crash (I think) so I replaced the original Toshiba MK4026GAX 40gb drive with a Fujitsu MHS2060AT 60gb drive. When I installed the new drive I noticed when checking the BIOS under Device Info that the Primary Hard Drive = {none}. I contacted the distributor and they assured me that this drive was compatible with my D610 laptop. When I re-installed my original Toshiba drive, once again the BIOS under Device Info still listed the Primary Hard Drive = {none}. What am I doing wrong?

I'm not real familiar with that model, however some general information. Some dell models have a adapter on the drive that has to be moved to the new drive.
Does the part of the drive that goes into the computer look the same between the two drives?

Dell Drive removal guide, also has links to the entire service manual for that model. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd610/en/sm_en/index.htm
