Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
I have a panasonic cf-48 and need to know what hard drives are compatible
You should be able to use most 2.5" hard drives. The specs do not specify SATA or PATA but it's almost certainly PATA. You can check by looking for pins sticking out of the drive (PATA) instead of the L-shaped plastic connector (SATA).
