    I want to install a hard drive of diving Bay 2nd in my 8945G and I need a support to hold it in place.

    Uses same medium used for the original HD. Any help to locate one, please?

    I didn't use a drive Caddy to install 2nd HD as my laptop has a built-in space to install a 2nd HD. All I need is a hard drive carrier. This support is no longer available because I contacted all online sources recommended to me and was infomed that the part is no longer available.

    So, I used the original media as a copy and one on the metal plate shaped in the same configuration as the original.

    I managed to do an almost exact replica and also managed to locate the 4 screws that I needed a local repair shop comp. I have now the 2nd HD mounted and it seems to work fine. I have access to my DVD/CD stlii would emit so.

  • How to install the second hard drive in the Satellite A200-1 of body weight?

    I see my new Satellite A200-1 of body weight has two hard drive bays, the research in the second span, I don't see how a second drive can be mounted as the plug into the Jack seems to be missing.

    What parts do I have to mount to place a second drive that they are held in stock by out of the local computer and are quite cheap, can someone advise me on part numbers etc of the bits I need.
    Thank you


    I know that this empty place for second HARD drive is a bit confusing, but the same situation is with my A200-1CR. The fact is that some A200 models come with 2 hard drives and laptop case design this place must be prepared for this second HDD.

    But this does not mean that each A200 can be improved for the second HARD drive.

  • How to use the second HARD drive of Satellite A210 - BP1 for mirroring

    Satellite A210-BP1 came with 2 HDD (160 GB).
    Now, I want to use the second hard drive mirrored the first, one that has Vista installed.
    This should be done without supervision and in real time - as a RAID 1.

    How can I do this?
    I also have Vista professional available and I would be willing to use 3rd party software as well.

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    Hi Jan

    I doubt that this is possible
    Why? The point is that you need to use two hard drives in mirroring, RAID striping, mode etc technology
    Satellite A210 can't RAID. It s only a SATA controller without RAID capacity!

    Therefore, the final answer is; NO, it is not possible to use mirroring


  • Satellite P70 - how to use the second HARD drive?

    I have recently bought a satellite P70 - A - 10 d.

    I see that there is no second location on hard disk, so I can install a second disk.
    You can see the second slot in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW75IsuFeoY.

    But I can't understand how screed the disc.
    Do I need additional items for it or he'll be safe just plug the drive and leave it without screws?


    If the second HARD drive bay contains the HARD drive connector, you can connect the HARD drive using the 2.5 HARD disk as [this | http://www.newmodeus.com/shop/images/TOS-X505%20sm.jpg] a

  • Satellite A350-122 - how to install the second HARD drive?


    I'm a french owner of an A350-122 (serial no: 39169719K)

    In the french of the manual user, page 1-5, it is written that it is possible to insert another disc hard, and on page 2-6, the rear of the A350-122 view shows a second branch on the left for a second hard drive.

    So, I bought an SSD Intel X 25-M to put in the second location. I opened the second location and there is nothing: no sata, no power connector connector, only a location empty.

    So, what's the problem with this Satellite A350-122?

    Thank you for your response.

    Hey Buddy,

    I agree with the user above. Not all Satellite A350 models support a second HDD. The point is that laptops are country specific products and this feature is not available everywhere. In addition, all models A350 by using the same notebook case in order to have a crack but no connector.

    In any case, you can use t a second HDD. :(

  • Message need to get an administrator authority, during the passage of the second hard drive.

    Original title: pass to the second hard drive

    My computer has two hard drives of 500 GB.  One is almost full.  I want to start using the other hard drive, however when I tried my computer said that I need the authority of a Director and that I don't have that power.  I am the only administrator on the computer, so I don't understand why it says that.  In addition, as the original hard disk memory becomes more complete, my computer crashes more.

    Can anyone help?

    Hi ColMarriott,

    Using a hard drive internal or external?

    You can try the second formatting hard drive after taking a backup of the data on the disk.

    If you use an external hard drive, you can try the following steps.

    a. connect the external drive.

    b. find the external hard drive in windows Explorer

    c. right-click on the drive and select format.

    You can check the following items and check:

    Install or remove a hard drive

    Create and format a hard disk partition

    Important: Make sure that you have backed up all the data before going forward with the format.

    Since the first hard disk is full and crashing, you can try to move some data and check only files not programs drive different or another location.

    Hope this information is useful.

  • Setting up the second hard drive preinstalled

    I have a Pavilion m9250f equipped of Windows Vista 64-bit with two 500 GB hard drives.  The first hard disk is almost at capacity (available 15%), and I want to know how to set up the second disc for use.


    The SATA controller mode setting is in the bios. F10 will get you into the bios. Back up your data before attempting to make any changes.  If you use the RAID mode then then you will need to enter the Intel RAID CTRL + I utility at startup to disable the parring.  RAID 1 is extra protection in case you have a hard drive failure.  If you disable the RAID 1 parring so be sure to perform backups at a frequency you can live if you experience a hard drive failure.  When the RAID 1 parring is disabled, then the second hard drive will be available for data storage (more than 500GB).  If get you there, then you can do a quick format on the second hard drive.  Now you should be able to move the folders you want to the second hard drive.

  • Recommendations for a second hard drive for my Inspiron 530 please


    I have an Inspiron 530 standard.

    My main 320 HARD disk drive is approaching full and I want to add a second internal HDD.

    My intention was to use the new drive as a secondary drive just to store and edit photos.

    Can anyone recommend a compatible drive about 500 GB in size I can use.

    Can you tell me if there a SATA drive that I need, recommended speed (RPM) and I'll need to get all the connectors etc.

    Thanks in advance for your help and advice



    Assuming you have the Inspiron 530 mini tour and not Slimline 530 s version.

    You can install any SATA 3.5 "internal hard drive 7200 RPM up to 2 TB without problem.

    Discover the brands Seagate and Western Digital, also check the length of the manufacturer's warranty, unfortunately hard drives prices are extremely high, due to the flooding of the Thailand, readers, I bought last September for $40 with a promo, now costs $108.

    Instructions for the installation of a second hard drive physically in a 530 are here.

    You will need a SATA data cable, there should be a spare connector to SATA power inside the housing.

    After you have installed the drive, enter the system setup and make sure the hard drive is "on" [We] and recognized.  The system configuration.

    For windows to recognize the second hard drive, it must be partitioned and formatted. Go to control panel, administrative tools, computer management, storage, disk management, right click on the new drive, select format, then you can assign a drive letter.


  • How to set up the second hard drive

    My Mac Pro has two, the hard drives of 1 TB.  I had originally planned on the use of the second hard drive for Time Machine.  However, instead of using Time Machine, I now save by cloning my first hard drive to an external hard drive using Carbon Copy Cloner.  I did not use Time Machine in a year and do not expect that I have to use more.

    My first hard drive fills up-I have about 150 GB unused on it, and with video editing I'm is squeezed.  What is the best way to configure my system so that I can use my second, now sleeping, hard drive? Is it possible of them gang up together so that my system will behave as if there is a 2 TB HDD?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes. It is called RAID.

  • Satellite A300 - Questions about the second HARD drive Bay

    To the underside of the laptop, there is an empty Bay for a second HDD internal.
    It is in the lower left corner (the first internal hard drive is on the lower side right) and the Bay has a sata connector.
    The plastic cover of the empty Bay extended columns so nothing (not even a hard disk) can be positioned on the inside.

    Someone knows:
    -If the sata connector works
    -If I can connect a secondary internal hard drive which work together with the primary
    -Where I could order the support for the secondary hard drive (i.e. toshiba code)
    -Where I could order a plastic cover without extensive columns, bcz I want to break.

    If my question is not clear, I can upload a photo.

    Thanks in advance


    You can order all the parts of the ASP from Toshiba in your country.
    Get in touch with some guys in the ASP and ask for the parts you need.

    You need two cables, one is a sata cable:

    This cable is only for data and connect the hard drive to the SATA connector on the motherboard.

    The other cable is energy:


    It connects the hard drive to the PSU.

    You can also buy a combo like this cable:


    All you have to do is to connect the hard drive and that's it. Make sure that the main drive with the operating system is connected to the primary SATA connector (I think there are the numbers 1, 2, 3...)
