Satellite 1700-400: maximum size of the HARD drive?


the hard drive of my 1700-400 has collapsed.
Initially, it was a 10 GB HARD drive.
What is the maximum size of the 1700-400 can work with?

Hi Grobi

Maybe someone exactly news upgrade HARD drive on this unit, but, in my opinion you can use up to 20 GB hard drives with no problems.

  • Satellite Pro A120 - Maximum capacity of the HARD drive?

    HI - new here. I have a:

    Toshiba Satellite Pro A120
    Model PSAC1E-04H00VEN number

    It's less hard drive. I have a 160 GB spare hard drive but when I try to install this using the recovery disc, the operation simply sticks on the "Please wait..." message. ». The specification for the A120, I noted that it supports drives of 40 to 120 GB. Which is strictly true and so why can't I just install this 160 GB drive?

    Thank you.

    Hi Lapitup,

    Usually the 160 GB should be no problem because the laptop supports the SATA interface and there is no limit of ability so that you can install each HARD drive.

    Be interesting to know what HARD drive you have installed exactly and if you tested on another computer because the HARD drive itself could be the problem and not on the computer. If the disc is defective recovery disc can t be installed so that you get an error message.

  • Satellite Pro 4280 - what is the size of the HARD drive?

    I just bought a laptop Toshiba Satellite Pro 4280. According to the manual, it should have a 6.0 GB HDD but in my computer it is shown as having only a 1.34 GB capacity.

    PS I formatted the disk to remove the former owner data and operating system and you have installed Windows 98SE

    [Edited by: admin]


    Satellite Pro 428Xcdt was certainly delivered with 6 GB HARD drive.
    Are you sure that you have checked the size of the HARD drive correctly?

    I guess the 1.34 GB is a free space on the HARD disk.

  • The recovery disk is sensitive to the size of the hard drive?


    I just bought my new laptop Satellite.

    I have owned one of these puppies before and so I know that the Toshiba recovery disc is a ghost image.

    What I did is erased the hard drive clean because it's a piece of the circuit city showroom and t couldn't trust what was out there.

    I put Ubuntu on the laptop. I want to put Vista on a VM.

    As you can imagine, the virtual machine would have much less space than the actual size of the hard drive (200 GB) but of course, large enough to accommodate the installation of vista and all the goodies of Toshiba.

    With this all said, the image will be cough, hanging and allows me not to install during installation of the ghost due to the different size image in space? So say the laptops hard drive space, it is 200 GB, but I only allocated 50 GB virtual hard disk.

    Now I don't have a version of the class my program of schools Microsoft vista legitimate business, but I would use the home premium came with the laptop and use that Toshiba had provided me.

    Then, going to work, or it will not?

    Thank you for your comments.

    > I wonder what the disc labeled "Toshiba recovery disk' which is come with my new laptop that I just bought actually is then.
    Don t confuse boyfriend new Toshiba with Vista OS notebooks are equipped with HARD drive recovery option. But it also contains an option to create a recovery DVD in case the HARD disk will fail.

    If you buy an old series laptop with Win XP, then it might be possible that you don t have the option to drive HARD recovery, but instead, you've got a recovery disk.

    As you said above; the recovery disk contains an image (I doubt it s a ghost still image) that contains an operating system Windows, Toshiba drivers, tools and additional software.

    Good bye

  • Is there a limit to the amount of the size of the hard drive that it can manage Windows Vista Ultimate?

    . I am trying to install a disk hard external sata 3 TB

    It would be only format 2.3 TB. Is there a limit to the amount of the size of the hard drive that it can manage Windows Vista Ultimate? If so, is there a way to enlarge it.

    Vista only supports drives of 3 TB for storage of the data and do not install the Vista operating system on this drive.

  • Increased size of the hard drive but Windows C drive still shows smaller

    I am trying to increase the size of the hard drive of my Windows XP virtual machine. I followed the instructions in the help to increase the size (rather than a second hard drive which suggested the FAQ I read later). My MAC finder shows a drop of water in my space of hard drive together, but the Windows C drive still shows the same amount as it had before starting the process. How can I get Windows to recognize the hard drive is bigger than it used to be? Will not install the program I am trying to load because of limited space.

    Have you seen resizing virtual disks with step by step Instructions?

  • Is there a limit on the size of the hard drive that can recognize ESX?


    I would like to know if there is any limitation with regard to the size of the hard drive that can recognize an ESX 3.5 Server? I have a Dell server with 1.8 TB of HDD. When I try to install ESX 3.5 on it, ESX shows that space and be approzimately 1.4 TB. I understand that ESX requires little space, but I would not be the image that it's 400GO.



    What is a RAID?  You could have 6 300 GB drives, RAID requires treatment, and basically, 1 disc is overload, so it seems you are using RAID 5 (if you have 6 disks).  In this case, that is right you have 1.4 flying over, which is what ESX sees.

  • Maximum size of the hard disk for Pavilion a800n


    One last question, I replace the hard drive (160G) in my old Pavilion a800n and wonder what would be the size (well at least 500G) max. Guess I could partition if necessary...

    Win. XP (32 bit), Phoenix BIOS, LTD. 3.11, 09/02/2004.

    Thank you!


    Sorry, based on the following specifications, I would not be to HARD disk. If you need more space for data/files, buy an external HARD drive. & Tab = specs

    Kind regards.

  • Satellite 1900-303: can I put the hard drive 120 GB

    I have a S1900-303 and I think to raise the 120 GB hard drive. What are the problems, if any, are that I meet and I can do froom the Toshiba startup disk or do I just install XP from a XP disc?


    That I myself remember Satellite 1900-303 has been delivered with the 30 GB HARD drive.
    So, in my opinion, 120 GB HARD drive size is too big and I presume that the BIOS of the laptop will not recognize the HARD drive!

    I think you can use a 40 GB, 60 GB and a 80 GB HARD disk.

    PS: you must search the HARD disk with the IDE (ATA-5) increased!

    Good luck and have a nice day

  • Satellite A210-171 - maximum capacity of a hard drive?

    What is the max HDD capacity satellite a210-171 may take?

    Hi turboiwan,

    As much I know satellite A210-171 has already interface SATA HARD drive so that you can install each HARD drive with this interface because the standard SATA are without capacity limits. This means that hard drives of 500 GB or more may work.

    For example, I upgraded my laptop with 500 GB Western Digital drive HARD and this worked great.

  • Satellite P10 804: how to remove the HARD drive?

    I would like to remove the internal hard disk of 60 GB of my satellite P10 804 and replace it with a bigger drive, but cannot find a way to enter in the case of removing the HARD drive.

    Does anyone have the details on how to do?


    To my knowledge, the HARD drive must be placed under the optical dirve.
    To remove the HARD drive, first remove the battery and the optical drive, and then follow the steps below:

    1. remove the four black screws that anchor the shield of aluminum covering the HARD drive and pull it out.
    2. gently pull on the HARD drive the front panel of the computer to disconnect the system board, then pull it out.
    3. remove the four silver screws that attach the HARD drive to the HARD disk case.

    But be careful. If you have no experience ask someone with more experience in these replacements.

  • Satellite L300-144 - how to replace the HARD drive?


    I have a problem: my laptop is Satellite L300-144, but I don't even know my hard drive model.

    Anyone know anything on this subject? And how replcae it? I mean where the hard drive is placed?
    And another question: is it available in BestBuy for example?



    As Akuma said on the underside of the laptop, you will find a HARD drive cover is fixed by 2 screws I think. If you remove these screws, you can see the HARD drive and remove/Exchange it.

    Satellite L300 supports SATA 2.5 hard drives, and you can buy the HARD drive of every computer store where you want to.
    I have good experiences with Seagate and Western Digital hard drives but of course, you can buy a disk from a different manufacture. ;)
