Will my Sony Notebook hard drive work in a Dell Notebook?

Question

I have a Sony Vaio laptop which I need to send in for warranty service. I need my data during that time. Is it possible to drop the HD from my Vaio laptop into a Dell laptop? Would the Dell even work?

Thanks.

This question was answered on April 19, 2005. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Since you mention warranty service, I would not recommend removing any parts from your notebook, as doing so would probably void your warranty with Sony

I would recommend burning any irreplaceable information to a rewritable CD (CD-RW) and work off of that while your notebook is being serviced.
