I have a dell dimension 4600 hard drive and would like to replace it. Will a Seagate sata hard drive work or is it a different hard drive format. Thanks

The specs shown here makes it seem the motherboard has 2 IDE ports and 2 SATA ports. In which case, you could then use either IDE(PATA) or a SATA hard drive. Maybe take a look on your motherboard to see if there are SATA ports. http://support.dell....ecs.htm#1084976

Hi pickster,

Welcome to the Community.

Yes, Seagate SATA Hard Drive will work. Provided you use specific Seagate SATA HDD compatible with Dimension 4600 and available at Dell. Please check for the below Part numbers for the Seagate SATA HDD:

Part number: R0190 120G, Serial ATA, 8M, 7.2K, Seagate-Alpine
Part number: W3004 80GB SATA, 7.2K, 3.5", 8M, Seagate Alpine
Part number: R0085 120G, Serial ATA, 7.2K, SEAGATE-AVALANCHE

First of all Dell_Henry_Rajamanickam, I removed your links because I deemed them unacceptable according to forum rule #5 which states

You may post a link to a website or forum in your signature. However, this is not a place to advertise your business, website, forum, etc. Anything considered to be advertising or "spam" will be removed without notice.

Secondly, I've dealt with a number of older Dell rigs and have never had trouble replacing the HDD...IMO SATA drives are backwards compatible and I've never found one that wouldn't work.

don't listen to this guy. he's simply trying to make money for dell...i would consider his post spam and only spam.


honestly, just about any sata hard drive will work.
