Check the jumper settings for your WD drive on the WD website..

Ok i searched and got this : Specifications for the WD Scorpio Blue SATA 3.0 Gb/s, SATA 1.5 GB/s, and PATA 2.5" drives which has jumper settings for drives models similar to mines as they have 4 pin but differ in size. otherwise same so can they be used for my drive WD2500BEVS.

Okay lets start from scratch i want to my laptop (1.5 Gbps interface support) to recognize a drive(HTS721010A9E630) supporting 6 Gbps. So can the interface speed be lowered using a desktop (the HDD being a 2.5 inch) and how do i connect it to the desktop since the ports are not same.

But my question is why do i need to adjust jumper settings for WD since it is my current HDD. Shouldn't i be doing the same for the replacement HDD which is HTS721010A9E630?
Correct me if i am wrong
Thank You for bearing with me

You should search for "Reduced Power Spinup (RPS)Mode"

I've attached a .pdf file from Western Digital for you...

For this you will need an external adapter to connect from desktop.
