Satellite 5200-802 - what HARD drive can I use?


I have a 5200-802 Satellite with a 80 GB HDD (IDE) and I would build in more.

I would like to know what is the largest room, which will be accepted by this laptop. Is it 100 GB or 120 GB, 160 GB or 250 GB or 400GO or?
Who manufactures?

Everyone knows?

Thanks in advance

What do you think is the biggest HARD drive you can use?
I think that this question can be easily answered: it s a HARD drive to 120 GB because the laptop has a limitation of LBA 28 bits in the IDE. If you want to know more about this please consult this website:

If you need a 120 GB 2.5 HARD drive and you can buy each production. I have good experiences with Seagate and Hitachi.

  • Satellite Pro M70 - what HARD drive can you recommend?

    I have Satellite Pro M70 and I have a 60GB HDD that I see what it s SATA 8 MB of buffer memory. The processor it s 1.73 GHz. I see that there is the Samsung typical 160 GB and the Western Digital Scorpio Blue 160 GB at the same price, which is better?

    And for only $ 11 more there's a Scorpio blue Western digital 320 with even 8 MB buffer than other 2. But I don t think so 320, that's a lot for Satellite Pro M70, and I have an external drive 2.5 "250 GB, data with this is not problem.

    What the best solution for this laptop? I don t want to burn now the phone LOL.

    Thank you


    If your laptop is already equipped with SATA interface, you can use each HDD with SATA1 or SATA2 port on the new SATA interface there is no limit on the old standard IDE

    It s your choice what HARD drive you buy because I put t know your needs, but in my opinion it makes no difference which manufacturing you buy the HARD drive. All hard drives are similar and there is no significant difference (performance).
    I made good experiences with Western Digital and Hitachi hard drives.

    By the way: you can buy a HARD drive with 7200 rpm or 5400.rpm. Latter is faster but requires more power. In my opinion, this is useful if you often work with large files.

  • What HARD drive can I use Satellite A60-125

    I would like to know what type of hard drive I can install on my satellite A60 (Pentium 4 3.00 Ghz) to upgrade the original Hitachi 40 GB. Can I install a 160/200 GB 2.5 "of any type (brand, RPM, capacity,...) or there are some limitations of the bios? Thank you.

    Hello Ric

    There is unfortunately no public on this matter document because Toshiba does not support upgrade. Toshiba gives some info on built in hardware and also on the RAM max that can be used. Upgrade takes care of disk HARD authorized partner in your country, and they have exact information on this subject.

    Yes I think there is limitation in the BIOS, but I'm sure that you can use up to 100 GB HARD drive, maybe more, but as I said it is not easy to find info on any official page of Toshiba.

    If you are lucky someone will post here the news of A60 laptop upgrade. Until then try to contact find some information online. Google all over the place.

  • Change HARD drive can always use recovery disk to reinstall Windows?

    I have a HP dv7-4296nr, partition recovery and recovery disks. Now, I want to change the current HARD drive to the new HARD drive. But I wonderring after I change the HARD drive, can I use the restore disc I burned before reinstalling windows?


    Yes you can.  Your existing set of recovery disks will not only install the operating system on the new hard drive, but will also reinstall all of the original software that came with your laptop as well as re - create the Partition D of recovery on the new drive.

    Kind regards

  • Satellite M70 - 394 - what HARD drive I can install?

    I have a Satellite M70-394 (PSM70E) that I would like to upgrade the hard drive.

    Can you tell me what hard drive I'm able to install, such as what type of interface?
    Do you also know if I can run windows 7?
    and can you tell me if I installed a larger hard drive and a new operating system will be my original toshiba product recovery disk work.
    then where in my drive hard is my factory set windows xp so I can remove and install the new operating system

    I m not a Satellite M70 owner but as far as I know this laptop comes with SATA drives. But you can check yourself if you remove the HARD drive and then you can see which interface it is.
    If you have a SATA interface, you can buy each HARD drive you want. On interface SATA there is no capacity limit.

    Normally you can install Windows 7 but it s not released yet. Theoretically, it should work but I'll wait until it's official market.

    With a new HARD disk, you use the Toshiba recovery disc too. Why not? It s not dependent on the HARD drive you have so just boot make up and follow the instructions on the screen.

    If you have any other questions, please let us know. :)

  • Satellite M30 - what compatible HARD drive can I use?


    My Satellite M30 hard drive crashed (after 3 years of intensive use). I would like to replace it, but I don't know which drive is suitable (SATA, ATA 6... etc). The original for this computer hard disk is the MK6021GAP.

    Can someone hep me on this subject? By the way, is - it complicated to replace the hard drive on this computer?

    Thank you

    Use the advanced search of this forum and you will get several results with different threads on the same topic.
    The replacement is not difficult. At the bottom f the unit, you will find a HARD drive Bay. Armand, remove the cover and cut the shape of the disk of the controller. But be careful.

  • You can install satellite M100-164 - what hard drive?


    I have a Satellite M100-164... This is a version of Middle East the M100, almost identical to the European version, as far as I can tell.
    (short only model no psma0e)

    I want to install a new hard drive. The specification says he uses a 5400 RPM Serial - ATA hard disk.

    I can use any hard disk of this type, or are there other things to monitor (for example depth of drive, the pin configuration?)

    for example can I use this drive:
    "Toshiba MK2555GSX 250 GB 2.5 SATA HARD drive internal

    ... or I should he play safe and use one that explicitly says its for the M100, for example this one on Ebay:
    "250 GB hard drive Toshiba Satellite L35-L45 M100, M105"
    [ mputing_HardDrives_RL]

    Thank you


    On the SATA drives, there is no capacity limit and you have on each HARD disk the same pinout. This means that you can use each SATA HDD you want and also SATA2 hard drives because they downgrade compaitible then standard SATA1.

    However, you can buy the cheaper version on Amazon. This HARD drive should work as well in Notepad.

    I hope I could help a bit.

    Good bye

  • Satellite A210-ICO - what HARD drive I can use?

    I'm getting bad sectors on the hard drive of my laptop, so I guess I should pay for a new one – but who are able to A210-1CO?

    TA, M


    Satellite A210 uses SATA hard drives and you need a new HARD drive with SATA interface. You can buy each HARD drive you want, for example 160 or 320 GB. On interface SATA there is no capacity limit.

    In addition, most SATA HDDs have already SATA2 interface but its compatible downgrade to SATA1.
    I would have preferred a HARD disk at 5400 RPM. Of course, you can buy a HARD drive with 7200 RPM, but they produced more heat and noise. For most of the applications are pretty 5400 RPM.

    I have good experiences with Hitachi and Seagate hard drives.

  • What HARD drive can I install the Satellite Pro 2100?

    I installed a second hand Toshiba 40 GB HDD in my Pro 2100, but he fails to recognize in the BIOS. Any ideas?

    Yes, I have an idea ;)
    Have you checked if the HARD disk is not corrupted?
    I think it's a first step to find out what's wrong.

    If you are sure that the drive is 100% damage not so in my opinion him BIOS is unable to manage the size of the HARD drive. It s just too big size.
    The BIOS supports multiple disk sizes but if HARD drive it too big the BIOS may not be able to recognize the HARD drive.

  • Satellite Pro 2100 - what HARD drive do I need?

    Hi all,

    I just got a Toshiba Satellite Pro 2100, but the hard disk has been removed for the protection of the data. Now, I don't know what type of HARD drive, I have to get PATA/SATA?
    Can a little help if you please?


    You can buy this store on the computer HARD drive because it has an IDE interface. You can t use a HARD drive with the new SATA interface.

    So I agree with Akuma. Already, I think that everything is written here.

  • Satellite A60 - 102 - what HARD drive is possible

    What capacity of hard drive used in this laptop


    Satellite A60 is a little older series and I think that the laptop supports the IDE HDD controller
    Perhaps the HARD disk controller support for only 28 bit LBA, which means that only 128 GB would be recognized by the BIOS.

    I think a 120 GB HDD should work but I'm not sure if the biggest hard drives would be supported due to mentioned m 28-bit LBA

  • 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.

  • Satellite P200-13Z - upgrade the hard drive - can I use SATA II hard drives?

    I have a Satellite P200-13Z with simple standard Fujitsu 120 GB SATA hard drive. I want to change this to a RPM SATA II 250 GB Western Digital 7200 RPM drive. This interface SATA laptop does support SATA II? Thank you very much!

    Not your portable computer does not support SATA II.

    However, you can buy the SATA II hard drive and put it in your laptop. Only way to get it going is to restrict the new speed of SATA HDD, I accelerate. To do this is to introduce a jumper on the drive to restrict it to SATA I speeds up. Once it's done put in your laptop and viola, it works.

    Good luck, but I would like to get a toshiba technician to install it if its under warranty. It's for your own good, so you don't turn your laptop into a boat anchor.
