What hard drives are compatible with this model?

The hard drive of my MacBook 13" Aluminum Unibody recently died on me, and i'm in need of a replacement. I'm not hardware-savvy so i apologize if this is a silly question, but am I able to purchase any internal hard drive and self-install? Or are there certain models and/or storage limits that i'm bound by?

Thanks!

Any 2.5" SATA internal Hard Drive can be used with this model of MacBook! They are available at a reasonable price pretty much anywhere hardware is sold, including right here on iFixit!

I tried a WD5000LPVX 500GB 2.5" SATA and when I booted the system the disk utility could not find it. I put back the old failed drive and it recognized it so I know its not the SATA Cable (even though the old drive cannot be restored or refomated etc.). Not sure why this new HD cannot work with my Macbook.

Commentaar:

It is probably formatted to Windows file system EXT3, try formatting it to FAT32 on another system, Linux will usually do a good job of this.

This is a long shot but would you know the original HDD model? I have a failed HDD i'm trying to recover, but I can't recall the original model to take parts from.
