That all depends on the model of hard drive, what brand it is, what family, etc.

Try posting a picture of your drive label, and we can tell you what to match.

The second drive here will be most likely a match
Matching the HM and preamp rev. Can confirm it
(Btw providing the no. H and HM and preamp rev. Can "maybe" find more cheaper)

this one will be most likely the same FW ver. too (need to check with them) but its a lot of $$$
