    Unless you have a old MacBook or PowerBook the you should be able to use a 2.5" SATA HDD in it.

    Not exactly sure, I just know I tore a PowerBook G5 apart and it had a Ultra ATA 100 instead of SATA

    I think I have an old macbook... Somebody told me I need a 2.5mm SCSI hard drive, but I can't find any. But I found 2.5mm sata hard drive.

    I'm pretty sure that takes a regular 2.5" SATA HD. Check out ifixit.com for how to swap it out.
