    tnkgirl talks about using one that was 5mm in height. 8mm might be too tall. Otherwise, it should be fine in terms of interface.

    You can fit an 8mm thick drive into the AAO, but you have to use a Dremel or other tool to cut the posts that hold some screws in before the drive will sit properly. If the posts aren't trimmed, the motherboard will not reinstall properly. However, (correct me if I'm wrong) it looks like this drive has a PATA connector and not a ZIF connector. So unless you can convert it over, it won't work.
