I would like to change my hard drive that is in my netbook. I believe it has a hhd drive ( the one with the pins on it) and I would like to use a ssd that I happen to have one spare (OCZ 128GB). It is a sata and I also have a little extra space in the drive compartment. Does anyone know if there is some type of adapter I could use that would change the hhd to sata ? The netbook is "Acer Aspire One AOD255E". Thank you for any answers.

Not sure what you mean by hhd but the SSD should be compatible without a adapter.

SSDs and SATA notebook hard drives...use the same connecting cables/connectors.
