Highest capacity IDE / PATA 2.5 Laptop drive

I’m trying to find out what the largest 2.5 PATA drive available might be. The largest I’ve found is the WD3200BEVE 320GB drive, but I was hoping to find a 1TB 2.5 PATA drive and was surprised to find only SATA 2.5’s in stores.

I have an Alienware Area-51 with an IDE/PATA interface, but would like the highest capacity drive I can get. Anyone know of a 2.5 larger than 320Gb with a PATA interface?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi there,

I believe the largest capacity for WD PATA drives is actually 320 GB. I have not seen larger than this.
