Qosmio G30 - what HARD disk are compatible for an upgrade

Hey guys,.

I would like to upgrade the HARD drive in my G30 and don't know what's compatible.
At present, they are readers of stocks 120 GB MK1234GSX.

I foung the MK3252GSX (250GB) but it is ATA8, while current drives are ATA7.
Is this a problem?

No one knows what larger capacity disks I can enter the G30?

See you soon

What you need is a SATA HDD.
The G30 supports SATA controllers and that's why you should use hard drives SATA (and not the IDE)

> I found the MK3252GSX (250GB) but it is ATA8, while current drives are ATA7.
Is this a problem?
The new interface of ATA8 is faster than the ATA7 (133 MB/s) but it s compatible down to other ATA standards. Therefore, you can use the disk HARD of ATA8 too.

> Anyone know what larger capacity disks I can enter the G30?
I don't know if you will be able to insert big hard drives 250 GB due to the limitation of the BIOS, but someone said that a 320 might be compatible as Mr. but I never tested tough, so I really don t know if it s true or not.

    Thank you.


    Satellite L300 supports SATA HDD!

  • What hard drives are supported for Satellite 5100-201


    My drive is making some strange noises, might he have one foot in the grave...
    Have the latest bios 1.9. and the original at 30 GB disk.
    Have a Hitachi 40 GB I tried with, but the laptop did not.
    So I would like to know what drives and formats supported for this model.

    Thanks in advance!


    Very strange did you use a compatible 40 GB HDD?
    To my knowledge, the laptop must be able to recognize the 40 GB HARD drive.
    As far as I know the 30 GB HARD drive that was installed is a Toshiba MK3017GAP and the computer supports a HDD of 20, 30, 40 or 60 GB.

    I think that these disc HARD must be compatible:
    Toshiba HDD2171B 40 GB HARD drive
    Toshiba HDD2183B 60GB

    PS: The strange noise from the HARD drive could be the beginning of the end
    So make a backup of the data.

  • What hard drives are compatible with Equium L300-146


    I want to spend my hard drive, but I'm not sure what to choose.

    Can someone tell me what would be a good choice? I think somewhere around 320 G.

    Thank you


    All hard drives 2.5 SATA must be compatible, since there is no physical limitation of the SATA HDD controller.
    So, theoretically, you could take a 500 GB 2.5 SATA HDD.

  • What DVD players are compatible with Equium A60 PSA67E?

    my question; What dvd players are compatible for an equium a60 (psa67e-001001en)?

    background; I did a very stupid thing! while I was at the Japan and about 18 months after buying my a60 in the United Kingdom, the packaged dvd player. I replaced it with a teac dvd player and it worked like a dream! I threw the old disk (I think it was a matsu * has, but can't remember the exact model). in any case, I came home and had a little time on my hands, so I decided to set my machine and corrupted the windows xp registry.

    Now, windows xp runs in the loop, I can't access and I need to wipe the hard drive and start again essentially. I put the recovery disk in, but the computer doesn't read him and desperately wants his wacky way to windows. I believe that it is not recognizing the teac drive that I used to replace the old. I think that if I put an original return type, the firmware can recognize the drive and I'll be back in business... or so I hope!

    of course, all the other tips would be welcome too! Thank you.

    work around? PS a work around, I thought so... copy the contents of the diskette of recovery on a hard drive (using my old computer) can change the current hard drive in my a60 with it... theory; When the computer detects the content during the start-up, it will install xp on another part of this drive and I have a working machine once again. could - this something like this work? any thoughts?

    Did you look in the manual of the user who is usually preinstalled on your laptop?
    There you should find information.

    I found these:

    But I've studied a bit in the internet and the following four sizes of hard drives must be supported:
    20 GB; 30 GB; 40 and possibly the 60 GB.

  • Satellite P100-160: what disk are compatible?

    My laptop is very slow with Vista, I format every month to make it a little faster but the hard drive is so slow, which is always reading (light still flashes). I would like to replace with a 100 GB SATA 7200 RPM HD, how can I check the compatibility? Has anyone tried it?
    Thank you


    The laptop already came with the 100 GB (5400 RPM) SATA HDD.
    The higher speed (7200 RPM) HARD drive shouldn't have a bad influence on the compatibility of the HARD disk!

    But I don t think that greater speed of HARD drive will increase the performance of the laptop immensely. Of course, it s best to use a 7200 RPM HARD drive as a 5400 RPM HARD drive, but the difference is not really noticeable.

    However, the compatible hard drives can also be purchased from the ASP in your country.

  • Satellite A200-1N2 what HARD drive are supported?


    I have an A200-1N2, with the original 120GB hard drive.
    I would like to upgraded to a larger capacity HARD internal disk.
    Can you please me, whose internal hard disk capacities and types (only IDE?) are supported?

    Thank you very much!!

    > Can you please tell me, what capacity internal hard drive and types (only IDE?) are supported?
    First of all, for all IDE HDD is NOT supported, because the laptop supports the SATA HDD controller. Therefore, use of SATA 2.5 hard disks.

    Given that the SATA controller is not limited to any size, you should be able to use any HARD drive 2.5 SATA.

    I agree with Akuma. You need a HARD drive 2.5 SATA.
    The SATA controller is compatible downwards, which means you can use a HARD SATA II in SATA drive I have controller.

  • SD-R6112 replacement - which drives are compatible for Satellite A30?


    I would like to replace my old combo CD DVD drive SD-R6112 installed on a portable computer A30 satellite in a new player. (another drive that could burn DVDs faster and burn DVDs double layer if possible).

    Do you know what model I could buy to replace my old SD-R6112 default?

    Hello guys
    Is that you will have a player with the settings /slave or c - salt straight masters.
    Readers is not compatible with the wrong settings would not be recognized by the BIOS.
    You should also know that these parameters is not modifiable as external hard disk passing riders.
    This is why I would really recommend ask the ASP in your country for compatible devices.
    I studied a bit on the net and found these:

    -Matsu * a CD-RW/DVD-ROM UJDA740,.
    -Matsu * a DVD-RAM UJ-810.
    -Matsu * a DVD - ROM SR-8177

    I hope I could help

  • Satellite L30 - 115 - what HARD drive is compatible?

    I want to ask is a compatible HDD for my laptop (Satellite L30-115). The interface is ATA-7/ATA133 and it looks like this: http://images.trustedreviews.com/images/article/inline/5889-wd3201.jpg

    I don't know if it is compatible with SATA interfaces, but it looks like SATA. Also in wikipedia ATA-7 is shown as PATA, who works with SATA I or something like that. If it works with SATA I, can I use SATA II or even SATA III and it is necessary to use jumpers to make work as SATA I
    Can you please send links with compatible models of HARD drive that works for my laptop?

    There are second hand hard drives that are ATA - 7 but I preffer new drive HARD if it is possible. SATA II or SATA III will be better for me because they are cheaper.

    Thank you.


    The interface on the photo you have posted is SATA interface, so you need a HARD drive with SATA interface. It makes no difference if you buy a model with SATA 1 or SATA 2 interface because the connector is the same and all SATA 2 downgrade compatible SATA 1 readers.

    There is also no limit capacity on SATA models, you can buy a HDD 500 GB, 640 GB or more disk space. You can take a model with a new SATA 2 interface, it works on SATA 1 interface too. :)

  • Pavilion p6310y: WD10EZEX hard drive is compatible for the Pavilion p6310y?


    I'm looking for a replacement of the hard disk of my Pavilion p6310y. I found a hard disk WD10EZEX on Amazon. It has the same features as the WD10EADS came with the pc when I bought it. But with some better features. The WD10EZEX is compatible?

    Hi, the active drive WD10EADS is a HARD SATA 2.0, while you are looking in WD10EZEX is a SATA 3.0. However, this should not be a problem since the SATA standard is backward compatible and a SATA 3.0 drive should work on a SATA 2.0 port. The difference in the size of the buffer and the ROTATION speed should not be a problem too, so you should be able to use a WD10EZEX in your system. Be sure to do a good backup of all your data on an external HARD drive before you start to replace your HARD drive. Good luck.
