Hard drive

This printer has a PATA/IDE hard drive. Can any PATA/IDE drive be used to replace it? I understand to format, the printer does this through the initialization process. So, if it shouldn't matter if it's a 40 or 80 gb IDE drive from an old laptop, right? Making sure before I buy one off of eBay to try. Thanks.
